A Karate Sensei Teaches You How to Fight Like Cobra Kai‘s ‘Eagle Fang’

The fourth season of Cobra Kai is now streaming on Netflix, meaning all we can think about once again is karate. YouTube’s Sensei Seth has made previous videos examining the accuracy of the karate depicted in the show and assessing which character is the best fighter, and even choreographed his own fight scene using the Cobra Kai combat style. In his most recent video, he demonstrates how to fight like a student of Eagle Fang, the new dojo started by former Cobra Kai sensei Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).

The hilariously named Eagle Fang has an ostensibly less aggressive philosophy than the “strike first, no mercy” principles of Cobra Kai, but is not just focused on defense in the way that Miyagi-do is. Therefore, Seth incorporates elements of both offense and defense into his demonstration.

“By being able to do more things, you become less predictable,” he says. “That’s kind of just what being a better martial artist is about; learning to do more things that you’re not super good at. It’s a really cool evolution that the show took, to let its characters be offensive and defensive at the same time.”

Seth goes on to explain that having this combination of styles allows you to have more options in a fight, showing the difference in the various styles in some footage of himself using karate techniques while sparring with a Muay Thai fighter.

“By doing this, the martial artist knows what they’re doing and can start branching out and learning new things that are uncharacteristic of what they’re used to, which is cool, because it just shows growth,” he says. “Essentially, what I’m saying here, is everything is Eagle Fang karate.”
