Cobra Kai, the spinoff series of Karate Kid movies, is not just about the lives of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence after their iconic fight 34 years ago. It also sees the struggle of power between the senseis of different dojos. John Kreese takes over ‘Cobra Kai’ from Johnny Lawrence in the series. Return of John makes Daniel jump in as a Miyagi Do sensei. Everything turns around when we see Terry Silver entering and taking over ‘Cobra Kai’ at the end of season 4. While the viewers are waiting for season 5 to stream, here’s the first female sensei of the Cobra Kai series. Is it the end of male-dominated power and portrayal of strength?

Alicia talks about her character and describes it “as being incredibly powerful, dangerous and mysterious.” She also adds, “She has her own, very particular fighting style. Her physicality is different from everybody else in the universe.” Netflix also shared an exclusive clip of her getting off the plane while interacting with Terry Silver. He offers Kim a position with money in his business, but this is what she has to say:

“I did not get on a plane for money,” is the answer to Terry when he offers Kim to be a part of sharing the legacy. However, the clip reveals nothing else about what Kim would do. But we see there is a common ally between these two regarding ‘Cobra Kai’. The actress reveals her character, Kim, is not someone who would be at the beck and call of anybody else. She also hints that everything we know about Cobra Kai will be totally changed.
