In a recent interview with IHollywoodTV, the father of two explained how he would approach as a contestant of “Dancing with the Stars”.

Right now it’s almost spiritual, right now it’s if I last two, I last two, if I last four, I last four, it’s really – I want to have a good time, like Marty Kove. Not like John Kreese. You know, it’s not a matter of being tough and tough, you know, it’s not a question, it’s really a matter of showing, I guess, showing the people that there is another side of this actor other than the popular John Kreese of “Cobra Kai,” Kove explained.

Ralph Macchio also Pparticipated in the Salon in 2011

Speaking to “Good Morning America” ​​in September 2021, Martin Kove shared that he had a recent conversation with “Cobra Kai” star Ralph Macchio, who appeared on “Dancing with the stars“Season 12.

During 2011 interview on “Lopez tonight”, Ralph Macchio explained to be a competitor of“ Dancing with the stars ”. He referred to the fact that he injured his leg during the production of the show.

“I was just doing this movement and I heard like a, you know, a burst, a burning sensation and the back of my knee was that Baker’s cyst and it ruptured. I don’t know why, it was just painful, ”Macchio said.

He continued to perform despite his leg injury and recognized that his persistence reflected the strength of his character Daniel LaRusso in “The Karate Kid”. As fans know, Daniel competed in the final round of the 1984 All Valley competition, despite a leg injury.

“It’s crazy. I was like it couldn’t be my shoulder, my hip, my elbow? No, it had to be the leg, you know,” Macchio said.

While “Dancing with the starsSeason 12 was on the air, ‘The Karate Kid Part II’ star Tamlyn Tomita expressed her support for Macchio during an interview in May 2011 with PacificRimVideoPress. She noted that she “knew he was a man of song and dance” while filming the “Karate Kid” sequel. She referred to the scene where her character Kumiko and Daniel dance at a 1950s themed dinner party.

“He was the one who taught me to dance. I know Kumiko was supposed to teach Daniel-San to dance, but Ralph Macchio taught Tamlyn Tomita to dance. And he was just a killer back then. So I can’t imagine her not winning, ”the actress said.
