After years of being bitter rivals, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) join forces in a battle with global implications in the first trailer for Netflix’s Cobra Kai season 6, part 1.

“We may have settled things in the Valley, but now, we have to be ready for whatever the world throws at us,” Johnny says in the trailer. At the end of season 5, Daniel and Johnny defeated Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith), eliminating Cobra Kai from the Valley. However, Cobra Kai founder John Kreese (Martin Kove) faked his death and escaped from prison. Kreese is now training a new crop of students in preparation for Sekai Taikai, the world championships of karate.

The students of Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang are now under one roof. As Cobra Kai has proven over the years, peace is temporary, and rivalries never disappear. The final moments reveal Daniel uncovering a secret box from Mr. Miyagi.

“Miyagi-son buried secrets for a reason,” Chozen (Yuji Okumoto) tells Daniel. “If we open, anything is possible.”
