Overview

When his beloved teacher is treacherously killed by the cowardly nephew of the Chinese Emperor, Shaolin Monk Kwai Chang Caine instinctively reacts out of sheer rage and kills him. Now condemned with a price of his head, he is forced to flee his homeland and seek refuge in the land of opportunity: America.

In the Old West, Caine embarks on a quest to find his half-brother, relying on his extraordinary martial arts skills and Shaolin training to resolve conflicts wherever he finds them.

Kung Fu was a hugely popular and highly acclaimed American TV series in the 1970s which was a unique amalgamation of western drama, action adventure, and martial arts starring David Carradine.  It further inspired a full length movie Kung Fu: The Movie in 1986 and a failed attempt to restart the franchise with Kung Fu: The Next Generation in 1987. Nevertheless, a spin-off sequel series, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues was launched in 1993 which once more starred David Carradine who portrayed the modern-day descendant of his own character who coincidentally also bore the same name, Kwai Chang Caine.
