Ready your fighting positions for the Cobra Kai teaser trailer

It's almost time to break out your Miyagi headband, chopsticks, and body bags, because Cobra Kai have reopened their doors and its open season on anyone who dares not to strike first, strike fast, and with no mercy.

Today, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the teaser trailer for COBRA KAI, another sequel in THE KARATE KID series which finds Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) squaring off against one another for hometown dojo supremacy.

In the trailer, we see a down-and-out Johnny whose looking to turn his life around by reintroducing the teachings of his old dojo, Cobra Kai, to the next generation of would-be fighters. However, that's not exactly sitting well with Daniel, who still carries the values taught to him by his sensei, Mr. Miyagi, into his everyday life.

COBRA KAI will find Xolo Maridueña (PARENTHOOD) as Miguel Diaz, a victim of high school bullies who’s taken under Johnny’s wing; Tanner Buchanan (DESIGNATED SURVIVOR) as Johnny’s son, Robby Keene, who’s determined to prove himself to be nothing like his father; and guest-star Ed Asner as Johnny’s old-school stepfather, Sid Weinberg.

The series also stars Courtney Henggeler as Daniel's wife and business partner, Amanda, while Mary Mouser (FREAKISH) enters the story as their spitfire daughter, Samantha.

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE scribe Josh Herald wrote the script with Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg of HAROLD AND KUMAR fame. Additionally, Hurwitz and Schlossberg will direct a vast portion of COBRA KAI, which is scheduled to cran kick its way onto YouTube Red later this year.

Be sure to finish painting your fence and sand any floors that are in need of some clever subconscious karate training, because Corbra Kai is coming back, baby, and they're not above trashing your property (or your face) to prove their point.

Will you be tuning in for COBRA KAI? Do you think Macchio and Zabka still have what it takes to step back into their respective roles after it's been 34 years since their first bout? Let us know in the comments below!
