Martin Kove, Cobra Kai's Sensei From Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, Stopped By My Studio To Hang Out

“Sweep the leg!”. “An enemy deserves no mercy!” If you know where those lines come from then you know Martin Kove. Martie is John Kreese the iconic bad guy from the original Karate Kid movies, and the reboot of Cobra Kai on YouTube and Netflix.

The young guy in the pic with Martie is his son, Jesse. And Martie, Jesse, and Tommi Rose all dropped by my studio to talk about some new projects that they’ve filmed right here in Florida. They’re here for the 6th annual Dunedin Film Festival because they filmed an upcoming Hallmark Channel movie in Dunedin called A Taste Of Love. That film stars Jesse and Martie in a story about a lady named Taylor played by Erin Cahill who is, according to “Struggling to find her culinary voice as a Network TV star, Taylor returns to her hometown to visit her parents. She must choose between her renewed relationship, saving her family restaurant, or her dream career as a worldwide known chef.”

They also brought in Tommi Rose who costars with them both and Kevin Sorbo in a new western, A Gunfighter’s Deal.

Here’s the interview, and we had an awesome time talking about all of Martie’s movie and TV work even going back to Gunsmoke, CHiPs, and The Incredible Hulk!

The Dunedin Film Festival is happening now all around Dunedin, Florida. There are meet-n-greets with many of the actors, including these 3, film screenings, and actor panels all weekend long.
