Hi guys, its been a while since I posted here, but I've just stumbled upon something (courtesy of which is too good not to share

John G Avildsen has a YouTube channel, and he has uploaded the raw rehearsal footage from the filming of the original Karate Kid. Its a fascinating watch, as you can see some deleted scenes and scenes/dialogue that were altered. Check them out - PS, are my old friends still here? "Ali with an I", "McFly"???

Parts 1-13

I actually watched some of this awhile back and it was entertaining at first .. but after awhile it just made me want to break out my blu-ray and watch the movie instead.

Did you watch it all? Were there any cool behind the scenes moments? What I watched was mainly just rehearsal of the movie .. which I definitely wasn't aware they even rehearsed with that much detail for the movie.

Very cool Helen! [Karate Kid] I love that kind of 'behind the scenes' stuff. I saw something similar on the DVD extras I believe, but this was a much longer cut.
