I hope - after this - Daniel San abandoned karate for good

"This movie is so bad, that it always makes me laugh.
It's really hard to believe that only 1 year has passed since Daniel defeated William Zabka (kinda weird because Macchio looked like a high school kid against a full grown man from some university).
This time Daniel looks much much older (and really fat at 28) than just a year before, but even like that, he looks again physically smaller and weaker than Mike Barnes, our new thug... A too high-strung gorilla that kicks Daniel's butt almost 95% of the movie and keep screaming lines like "I own you, Larusso" (a really annoying guy that won't live much if he keeps being like that).
By the way, Daniel looked equally smaller and weaker than Sato's muscled nephew in KK2. But I guess his karate was better then and that's why he put the asian dude to sleep (temporarily) at the end of that movie.
Anyway, I keep wondering why the hell does Daniel keep Mr. Miyagi as his instructor?
Because his karate it's only good for tournaments. In real life it's useless against Billy Sabka (KK1 thug), Yuji Okumoto (KK2 thug) and the mentioned Barnes (KK3 thug), that keep banging his arse almost during the whole movies! And I'm pretty sure that those bastards waited for him outside, after the duel, to keep banging him like a big band drum.
I think he would have had better results joining the Cobra Kai Dojo.
Or maybe - this is a better explanation - Daniel as a student sucked bad, because Mr. Miyagi, being older and smaller, always kicked the whole bunch's butt by himself, in every movie, without help (?).
Finally, I hope Daniel San forgot everything about that damned karate and looked for a real job, because karate has only brought woe to his life: abandoned by his mother, trashed by bullies, dropped by girlfriends and stalked by psychopathic instructors.
The whole sense of this movie can be seen at the end, when everybody begins to throw Cobra Kai t-shirts over the heads of Terry Silver & John Kreese... Kreese, angrily overreacts and threatens the people near with the back of his hand. An old lady in front of him, just laughs in his face."
