The tremendously popular Robert Mark Kamen version of the The Karate Kid movies has earned its rightful place as one of Netflix’s greatest series, and coming next, we define who Albert Omstead is. Omstead was the expert referred to in a Cobra Kai season 4 homage.
Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg are the creators of the television program Cobra Kai. Years after their bout at the All-Valley Karate Tournament in 1984, Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence re-convene in the show’s current. New characters are also introduced to the school.
Celebration of Cobra Kai’s Fourth Season
Cobra Kai season four’s final credits sequence included a tribute that quickly caught viewers’ notice.

To honor the late actor Ed Asner, who portrayed Johnny Lawrence’s dad Sid Weinberg, the pilot episode also included an In Memoriam piece.
Do you recognize Albert Omstead as a person?

The Omstead Family mourns the professional’s passing
Omstead’s family claimed in a public statement that the expert’s demise was due to an odd incident at his house, in the form of a wall suddenly falling.
Scott Wachtel, the brother-in-law of the crewmember, told 11 Alive the following about the tragic incident: “The garage door was closed and there was a van parked right here (in front of the garage), so he couldn’t run this way (toward the garage), he couldn’t run this way (away from the garage), because the rest of the wall was collapsing over here, so he had nowhere to go.”
Then Wachtel said, “Our world right now would be in a very different position if he had gone out there five minutes sooner or five minutes later.”
Cobra Kai season 4 is now streaming online thanks to Netflix.
