Mike mentions it. Also, video case is shown.
Cobra Kai: Fire and Ice (2019) (TV Episode)
At the conclusion of the Cobra Kai demonstration at Valley Fest, Johnny breaks a stack of flaming bricks. This is a reference to Sidekicks, a movie that is itself heavily inspired by the Karate Kid, in which Jonathan Brandis's character also breaks a stack of flaming bricks. The fact that a clip from one of Chuck Norris's films plays as Johnny is watching videos on his computer may also have been an intentional reference to Sidekicks, as Chuck Norris also stars in Sidekicks.
