For the Win!
At the Cobra Kai dojo, you can learn all sorts of valuable life lessons. First on the list of things to learn is how to "sweep the leg." After that, you graduate into the lesson "no mercy." Finally, once you've mastered that, you begin to learn the art of "put him in a bodybag."
While the tactics may seem extreme, the Cobra Kai do what is necessary to win. That means anything goes. Whether you love this approach or hate it, you have to admit that it made for a compelling storyline in the Karate Kid movies. Not only were these fools in for a surprise, but they must have been quite embarrassed when things didn’t work out quite as they’d planned. But, to each their own. Some people prefer the Cobra Kai way, which is fine by us.
Design & Details
If you want to begin lessons in John Kreese's dojo, you've got to start by donning this Authentic Karate Kid Cobra Kai costume. It looks like the one worn by Johnny Lawrence from the 1984 movie. The high-quality costume includes everything you need to hit the mats this Halloween. The tunic top has a waist tie as well as a Hook and Loop fastener patch for a name badge and an embroidered Cobra Kai logo patch on the back. The costume also comes with interchangeable name badges so you can be your favorite character this Halloween. The matching pants have a drawstring waist for the perfect fit and five embroidered patches on the right leg. The karate belt measures 2” wide and is 100” long so you get the authentic look. Top it off with the Cobra Kai headband and you’ll be ready for anything!
Villain or Hero?
Now, it might be going a bit far to claim that Johnny was the hero of the Karate Kid but you've got to respect the ambition in this guy. Feel the victory when you slip into this Cobra Kai ensemble!

The costume itself is made of polyester as it clearly states in the description, so if you are expecting a canvas GI then don't. The patches etc. are spot on, the only gripe I would say regarding the leg patches is that they seem to be more middle front of the leg aligned as opposed to middle side of the leg, maybe this was just on mine?
As a rough size guide for anyone buying this, I am 5'7" and have a 38/40" chest and a 32" waist, 29.5" leg and I went for the small and this was a perfect fit for me,
All in all this is a nice costume, but I would say the price is maybe a little on the high side, I would say a price of around 50 pounds would be more realistic.
