Episode Guide

Dojo Day Afternoon


Road to Wasabi

Swords and Magic is the fifth episode of season one of Kickin' It. It aired on June 20, 2011. It features the first appearance of Sidney.


Milton prepares for a live-action role-playing battle (or a L.A.R.P battle). But his friends don't want to participate because they think it's uncool, except for Rudy who thinks it sounds like fun. But after thinking of all the nice things Milton has done for them, they decide to join him and show up just in time to help him beat the Dark Knights and win the game. Meanwhile Jerry tries to impress Kelsey Vargas by telling lies to her. His lies are later debunked by Kim. When the gang go to L.A.R.P, Eddie's "explorer scout skills" get the gang into some trouble but eventually they find Milton and help him defeat his opponents. They then celebrate their victory by parading around the school in their larping costumes which causes the whole school to laugh at them.


  • L.A.R.P is also featured in the Good Luck Charlie episode "L.A.R.P in the park" and this may or may not be a coincidence because the premiere of Kickin' It and the premiere of the new season of Good Luck Charlie aired back to back.
