A boy who's been having trouble with bullies tries to convince an old Japanese man to teach him karate so that he can defend himself. At first, the aged Mr Miyagi is reluctant to help - but eventually decides that he can combine giving the boy patience and karate skills and getting his own tiresome household chores done (as shown in the film's famous "wax on, wax off" scene!). A film packed with energy, humour and entertaining fight scenes. PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering The Karate Kid you may receive a disc marked as being a 15 certificate, however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 12. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not the additional features or audio commentaries etc), The Karate Kid can be treated as a 12 certificate in a school setting.
