In the final showdown, humiliated high-kickin' villain Kreese (Martin Kove) returns to get his revenge against reigning karate champ Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and his mentor Mr Miyagi (Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita). Bankrupt and still smarting after that defeat, Kreese has enlisted a nasty helping hand... but Daniel turns down the title challenge. More fast-paced martial arts and a winner for those who got off on the previous two instalments.
