Watch The Karate Kid - Alternative Versions.
A lot of posts focus on the 'coming of age' aspect of this movie, but
the very overlooked part is the role it played in helping to alleviate
many of the stereotypes a very Asian phobic America was after WWII,
Korea and Vietnam.
They make a point of showing Miyagi in a US Army Uniform--and a War
Hero-- and makes references to detention camps Miyagi's family was sent
to (a horribly dark period in American history)...where Miyagi's wife
was being sent (pregnant) and where she and his unborn child (son)
ultimately die during childbirth. There are also a few scenes in which
ethnic slurs are used by rednecks toward Miyagi.
Taking this into light, and taking the fact that Daniel has no father
that we know of in this movie, the name Daniel-san (sounds like
Daniel-SON) helps demonstrate a father son bond that is overlooked.
Much of the conversation between Daniel and Miyagi is about Miyagi's
great father in Okinawa, because Miyagi has acquired all this knowledge
and wants to share it. Daniel substitutes for the son Miyagi never had
and Miyagi substitutes for the father Daniel doesn't have.
