Some friends have an email that read going back about 15 years. On one topic.

The Karate Kid.

No joke.

One thread. Same subject line. (Edit: Subjext line has changed a few times but the thread remains!)

Just stacks of back and forth all about the Karate Kid. It’s funny. It’s also kind of impressive. We’re all fans at different levels. But one of us took it to new heights. With Cobra Kai being filmed in Atlanta, his hometown, well, he found his way into a cast party and into a cameo in Season 3.

I just wrapped up the episode and there he was. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Daniel-san. IT WAS AWESOME!!

Linh Tran is a good guy (hell, when I think of the tree he and his family planted for my Dad … I’ll tell you, good doesn’t cover it). No matter where he goes, he knows. And he does it all in the nicest possible way. That’s what makes it awesome. He’s just a good guy.

May be an image of 17 people, people standing and text that says 'Block Cobra 4 Kai S3:E4 The Right Path'

Today, #iamgrateful and #iamthankful and #iamjealousashell that the The Karate Kid franchise honored a true fan. Talk about childhood dreams coming to life!

Couldn’t have happened to a better guy or a bigger fan.
