Half-Chinese/half-American Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine) grows up to be a monk and martial artist but is forced to flee his home after killing a member of the royal family. Arriving in America, Caine begins searching for his kin in this iconic 1970s series.
Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine is well schooled in the spirit-mind-body ways of the priesthood by the blind, avuncular Master Po (Keye Luke) and the stern yet loving master Kan (Philip Ahn). As he wanders the American West armed only with his kung fu skills, those who encounter him find him to be a different kind of hero: One who speaks softly, but whose physical power is baffling.
This early 70’s series standard and moral backbone transcend time and indeed were inspired by the Tao Te Ching. The lessons taught are universal and always entertaining.
