With almost five decades in the showbiz, Martin Kove has been able to keep himself relevant throughout the years. While he made his career out off The Karate Kid trilogy, the recent spin-off Cobra Kai has also done the same for his legacy over three decades later.

Fans will be able to see the actor in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood in 2019. Apart from the movie, the actor has numerous other projects lined up.

Starting with an uncredited role in Little Murders in 1971, Martin has come a long way in his career. He first got himself noticed in 1975 as the evil Nero the Hero in the Death Race 2000. The same year, he managed to bag the role of Clem in White Line Fever, which further fueled his rise to stardom. 

Martin made his TV debut in 1981 with the series Cagney & Lacey as Police Detective Isbecki. He has also had the opportunity to star alongside the great Sylvester Stallone in Rambo: First Blood Part II.

However, the actor got his most significant visibility to the public in 1984 through the hugely successful movie, The Karate Kid. He played the role of John Kreese  -  the head instructor of the Cobra Kai karate school - and later reprised the character in the sequels: The Karate Kid Part II (1986) and The Karate Kid Part III (1989). 

The Cobra Kai sensei has since kept himself busy, mostly in the action-thriller genre. He has notched up appearances in over 80 movies to date, as well as numerous TV shows guest roles. Throughout his time, the actor has been able to garner a net worth amounting $2 million.

While there were rumors of Martin being gay in the past, the accusations were all baseless allegations. Martin is a straight man and is now in a relationship with a woman named Mary.

Although the actor has kept his relationship private for the most part, he eventually came out to the public a little at a time. Martin shared a picture of himself and his girlfriend on his social media on his birthday in 2018.
