Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) makes it his life's mission to take down Terry Silver with the help of his once enemy and now friend, Chozen. LaRusso does not immediately resume his position as Sensei because he is too involved and determined to take down Silver so he pans out plans and reaches out to an old battle friend, Mike Barnes (Sean Kanan) as he thinks Silver reached out to the bad boy of Karate again, so it is completed with espionage work and a couple of hilarious misunderstandings over the course of ten epic episodes.
