Mr. Miyagi's gotta be rollin' in his grave ... because his finest pupil just TALKED SMACK about the legendary crane kick ... telling TMZ Sports the move would never work in a real fight. 

Daniel LaRusso himself -- Ralph Macchio -- was out in NYC yesterday ... almost 30 YEARS after the "Karate Kid" was released in theaters ... when he dropped a truth bomb about the most iconic fighting move of all time.

Note to Cobra Kai -- sweeping the leg ... also generally ineffective.
