How to Be Like Chozen from 'The Karate Kid Part II'

National Film Society gets a lesson in awesome from Yuji Okumoto.

Here's some required viewing for my fellow Karate Kid Part II fans... Just in time for the digital release of the action/comedy feature Awesome Asian Bad Guys, Stephen and Patrick of National Film Society recently invited actor Yuji Okumoto to instruct them with lessons on How To Be Like Chozen, the incredibly mean, pectorally-blessed villain from The Karate Kid Part II. (Specifically, that scene where he takes off his shirt.)

As you'll see, for Patrick and Stephen, it's easier said than done:

That's right! With special tomato-throwing appearance by the lovely Tamlyn Tomita.

Let's face it. It's virtually impossible to match the badass shirtless swagger of Yuji Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi in that infamous scene. But sympathy points to Stephen and Patrick for giving it an ill-fated try.

Awesome Asian Bad Guys will be available June 23 on all major VOD platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, and Playstation. Pre-order the full movie, plus bonus features, at the Awesome Asian Bad Guys website. Watch the trailer here. And if you're in Los Angeles, join us for a special screening and celebration with the cast and crew on June 23 at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Little Tokyo.
