Who Is The Karate Kid's Tournament Referee?

The Karate Kid is a must-see for any 1980s film fan

In the movie, Daniel faces off against Cobra Kai's Johnny Lawrence at the All Valley Karate Championship Tournament, but you probably didn't know this.

Martial artist and karate choreographer Grandmaster Pat E. Johnson plays the tournament's referee, according to IMDb

Johnson choreographed all three of "The Karate Kid's" sequels as well as the original film.

The stunt coordinator has worked on films like "Batman & Robin," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and "To Live And Die in LA."

But nothing has ever matched the original's cultural impact.
