It's hard to believe that The Karate Kid is more than three decades old, but the cult classic martial arts flick is still very much a beloved pop culture artifact.

Unlike Daniel-san and his karate kicks, though, it was a much longer process putting together the 1984 box office hit. However, thanks to the magic of the Internet, fans can finally see Ralph Macchio and company working hard on their lines and martial arts moves with these incredible behind the scenes rehearsal videos.

The unearthed clips show everyone from Mr. Miyagi to the Cobra Kai as they perfect the story as well as their approaches to the characters.

Sure, the videos aren't as polished as the finished product, but you have to admit, they're pretty fun to watch.

Crane kick FTW!
