To kick off the premire of the new Kararte Kid movie... a real karate kid is in El Paso.
Ernie Reyes Junior is in El Paso at the Tinseltown movie theater.
You might remember Reyes from movies like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies...
We was also in "The Rundown" with Dwanye "The Rock" Johnson. Remember, he was the little guy who beat up The Rock with karate.
Reyes says what you see in movies like the karate kid is real... sorta
" The basic martial arts lessons... it takes a lot of work to reach a high level of success," said Reyes.
Reyes says he hopes the new Karate Kid movie will re-ignite national interest in martial arts the way the original Karate Kid movie did back in the 1980's.
