Premise: Instead of Hawkins, Billy Hargrove moves to the Valley with his father and stepmom (no Max). After being invited to a beach party, he starts flirting with a girl named Ali then gets his ass kicked by some blonde guy. A series of events later, he gets ambushed by a whole group of them on Halloween before getting rescued by Mr. Miyagi. Billy then finds himself having to train for a karate tournament.

What changes in the movie? What changes to Billy and the cast?

Guidelines:

  1. Assume that Billy pursues Ali, which he most likely will. She might be put off from his nature.

  2. Billy and Johnny, two alpha males, have a rivalry.

  3. Miyagi's teachings get through Billy's heart.

​ To me I thought this premise would be interesting in the sense that someone like Billy could achieve redemption. Seeing as how no little sister for him to terrorize here and no bullying her friends , there’s potential.

He and Johnny would be friends for sure.

Not too familiar with Billy but something tells me he’s more likely to head to the gun shop than karate class after Johnny Lawrence kicks his ass on the beach!

@batkevin74: nah Billy is your typical 80s high school bully, he would probably just go get some brass knuckles or switchblade. Lol
