Introduction to Cobra Kai Season 5
Cobra Kai Season 5 picks up right where Season 4 left off, with Miguel (Xolo Mariduena) running away from home to find his father in Mexico. Miyagi Do and Eagle Fang Karate are closing and Cobra Kai is the only dojo in the valley. Kreese (Martin Kove) was set up and is serving a jail sentence. He was set up by none other than Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith), who manipulated everything behind the scenes. For instance, the Cobra Kai win in the All Valley tournament was because the referee was bribed so Tory never won the tournament.
Season 5 sees Silver expand Cobra Kai, opening up a flagship dojo in Encino and acquiring local dojos across the San Fernando Valley. He also recruits a group of senseis from South Korea led by Kim Da-eun (Oona O’Brien), the granddaughter of Kim Sun-yung. Kim forces the students into a brutal combat tournament as a test, during which former Eagle-Fang student Devon Lee (Erin Moriarty) fails to defeat Tory (Peyton List). The next day, Devon joins Cobra Kai, due to her being in Topanga briefly.
Meanwhile, Johnny (William Zabka) and Robby (Tanner Buchanan) are heading on a father/son road trip to Mexico, which just so happens to be where Miguel has gone to search for his birth father. Along the way, they help a group of Australian scammers who were attempting to pickpocket them, and Robby begins to bond with his father.
