To celebrate the launch of the film, Escapade is stocking the officially licensed fancy dress costumes from the 1980s film, including
favourites Cobra Kai and Daniel San costumes.
Escapade is one of the few suppliers in the UK that has managed to get its hands on
the official Karate Kid costumes.
Pendra Maisuria, chief executive officer of Escapade, said: "We are looking forward
to the release of the new Karate Kid film and hope that it can live up to the huge
success of its iconic 1980s predecessor. In anticipation for the new film we will be
wearing our officially licensed 80s Karate Kid, Daniel San and Cobra Kai costumes
around the shop."
