I have seen the movie and I distinctly remember a fighter being warned for striking the head. But Daniel is allowed to Bruce Lee a motherfucker in the jaw whenever he wants?

He should have been DQ'd and barred from all future All Valley competitions.
Biased towards Daniel-san or not she has never seen him train or fight. Laying out the rules to favour him would be impossible. That scene is there for non combat athletes noobs like you to get an understanding of how the fighters are allowed to strike in the tourney at that time. Johnny got fucked up by a one legged kid from Jersey with only two months of training who also banged his ex. Even after his teammate did his best to cripple him Daniel-san sucked it up and earned hero status. If Johnny came around to accept defeat and man up enough to hand Daniel-san his hard earned trophy why can’t you?
Honestly, you guys are just arguing semantics at this point. The commission would never hear nor consider Johnny’s appeal. We all know how rigid Point Karate commissions are, especially The All Valley. Maybe Daniel-San got away with one, maybe Mr. Miyagi used Daniel to get in his mom’s britches.

It's Kyokushin Sport Karate.

Punches to the face are no longer legal but kicks are.

Gosh.

Ali made it clear her and Johnny were through before Daniel got in there. Also the night Daniel was supposed to pick up Ali from the country club she was sexually assaulted by Johnny on the dance floor. No fucking way this guy deserves any sympathy or claim to her body.

The night he went over the cliff he was enjoying a peacefulride home on his BMX and was unjustifiably attacked by a gang of motorcycle thugs with Johnny as the ring leader

The water hose was placed into onto the stall by Daniel while Johnny was rolling up marijuana cigarettes which were illegal at the time. Even today Johnny would be underaged and breaking the law for possession. Daniel did the right thing by trying to keep drugs out of Johnnys body and save him a criminal record.


Here's the verbatim quote when Ali explains the rules to Daniel. The “kick was illegal” cry babies are so wrong here.

"Everything above your waist is a point. You can hit the head, sternum, kidneys, ribs. Got it?"

Throughout the preliminary matches shown in several clean points are scored (and one match is won) by kicks to the face, reflecting the reality that face kicks were, in fact, legal techniques, and clearly establishing that they are legal in the KK universe.

Have you even seen the movie?
