Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is doing the foxtrot from the Jersey Shore boardwalk to the floor of Dancing With The Stars, and his father thinks he is going all the way!

In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Mike's dad, Frank "The Senior Situation" Sorrentino, reveals the secret behind his son's best moves: karate.

"After the first round, he'll be the one to beat," predicted Frank.

"He's not a great dancer, but he's a great learner and a fierce competitor. Once Michael puts his mind to something there's no stopping him."

Frank shared never-before-seen childhood photos of Mike when he competed on the Metro Stars Junior National Karate team and tells RadarOnline.com that he and his older brother Marc were known as the "Double Trouble Team."

"Michael has great flexibility," Frank said. "He'll be able to jump over her Karina Smirnoff's head!"

Mike had the support of his father during his karate days and Frank says he'll be cheering him on while he competes on Dancing With The Stars as well.

"I will definitely be attending DWTS," Frank told RadarOnline.com. "It's my favorite show, and I can't wait to go."

The Senior Situation even sounds slightly envious of his son.

"I wish I could dance with Karina," Frank said. "I would win no problem!"

Mike will showcase his skills on the dance floor during the season premiere airing September 20 on ABC.
