The Martial Arts Kid DVD Review

The Martial Arts Kid

There’s a new The Karate Kid movie. It’s not actually part of the The Karate Kid series. That’s why the new film is called The Martial Arts Kid. The title is different (kinda), but the story is essentially the same: a high schooler is bullied, but he deals with his situation by learning karate. Sounds familiar, right? Don’t worry.

The Martial Arts Kid (Traditionz Entertainment) is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download.
