Calling all badasses – tie on your headbands and tighten your cores! The only official guide to the kickin’ world of the Emmy-nominated and globally beloved show Cobra Kai is coming this fall.
The Kick-A** Book of Cobra Kai ($29.99) is a celebration of the superfans — an essential companion to the show and a master sensei ready to guide readers through the karate-crazed San Fernando Valley. Journey through the deceptively humble strip-mall that houses Cobra Kai, the magical backyard retreat of Miyagi-Do, the dangerous abandoned factory used in aggressive Eagle Fang training, and the wilderness proving ground of Coyote Creek — not to mention Johnny and Miguel’s apartment complex and the LaRusso residence. The legacy of the Karate Kid and Cobra Kai continues with never-before-seen photographs and illustrations, secret moves from behind the scenes, exclusive interviews with Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso), William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence), Martin Kove (John Kreese), Xolo Maridueña (Miguel Diaz), Mary Mouser (Samantha LaRusso), and much more!
You’ll hear directly from your favorite characters: Johnny Lawrence shares his perfect road trip playlist. Daniel LaRusso presents his history of Miyagi-do. Samantha LaRusso gives prospective students a guide to a drama-free life at West Valley High (watch out for those railings!). Demetri Alexopoulos shares his tried-and-tested dating tips (yes, really). But if that doesn’t kick enough ass for you…
The show’s creators will give an unprecedented look inside the making of Cobra Kai: the writing, directing, and production of this beloved franchise that has grown from scrappy underdog to global phenomenon. If you think you have what it takes to dive into the most essential companion book ever produced, then it’s time to swoop down like an eagle and sink your fangs into this baby.
The 240 page hardcover book will go on sale November 15, 2022. Pre-order HERE.
