If you've listened to the filmmakers commentary on the DVD/Blu-ray, you'll have heard that Daniel's apartment complex has been demolished. We're pleased to tell you that this is completely untrue... It's still there, but for how long..?

Ali's mansion was at 4072 Alonzo Avenue in Encino [Map]

One of the two extiors for the Cobra Kai (when Daniel is having lunch with his mom) is now a place called The Hair Shop at 5376 Wilshire Blvd [Map] and is less than a block away from the United States post office at 5350 [Map] which was the protest in front of the Golden State Savings and Loan in the 1993 movie Falling Down.

The Encino Oaks Country club was filmed at the Calabasas Country Club at 4515 N Park Entrada in Calabasas [Map]

They went miniature golfing at Golf 'N' Stuff at 10555 Firestone Blvd, in Norwalk [Map]

The tournament took place at the Matadome at California State University Northridge (CSUN) at 18111 Nordhoff Street in Northridge. [Map]
