Ralph Macchio beat all his foes from the Cobra Kai dojo on the big screen in "The Karate Kid" and now he's ready to best his small screen competitors from the ballroom on "Dancing with the Stars."

Following Monday night's cast announcement for the upcoming season of the ABC reality show, Ralph stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday to chat with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover about competing for dancing glory on the hit ABC reality series.

"The timing just seemed right," Ralph told Billy and Kit when asked why he signed on to compete. "There just seemed to be a resurgence in [the 'The Karate Kid'] fan base, there seems to be the right fan base for the show. My wife and kids and family are like, 'Do it, do it!'
