"Having suffered a deliberate knee injury at the machinations of the opposing team’s nefarious instructor, Daniel is finally able to stand up to his bully in the karate ring. So what does he do? He kicks the dude in the face. Which, we already know, is a legal move. Or is it? The rules of the tournament say they’re kosher, but some calls from the officials say otherwise.
