Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Ralph Macchio and Willam Zabka, who tangled 34 years ago as Danny Russo and Johnny Lawrence, respectively, in The Karate Kid, are at it again in the first glimpse of their YouTube Red Original Series.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues proves that whatever beef these more-than-middle-aged men had as adolescents simmers still, as they train a new generation of students.

The snippet shows them facing off in a new Cobra Kai dojo, where Johnny presumably passes on the “no mercy” method of martial arts he learned from his fallen sensei, who suffered the disgrace of a nose-honk at the hands of Mr. Miyagi so many years ago.

We can’t believe it’s not a spoof, either.
