FLKcinema, also known as Flash Legs Kung Fu, was started back in 1992 in London UK as a shop in Clapham, London where English speaking fans found it extremely difficult to find RARE CLASSIC KUNG FU movies that was released in several English speaking countries such as UK, US, Africa and Holland. There were several European countries that were also fanatics such as Germany, France and Italy coupled with Greece, Turkey and Spain.European fans were so engrosed with the FANDOM of RARE CLASSIC Kung Fu movies that they would pay up to 50.00 UK pound for one VHS that had a rare title that was no longer available in the mainstream.
In the early 90’s FLK aka Flash Legs Kung Fu became a well known fan base for RARE CLASSIC Kung Fu movies and fans would travel from the US, Germany, France, Holland, Italy to get hold of the RARE Titles that were not considered as available on VHS, Betamax.
FLK was started by Pete Senior who would travel all over the world in order to get hold of the rare titles from countries such as US, Europe,Hong Kong and Africa where a large majority of titles were dubbed in English language specifcally for the western market duringthe 70’s and 80’s era. The UK fans were also fantics who hunted these titles down and started to trade with each other among the West Indian comtunities who were watching these movies in the cinemas during the early 70’s,. mainly in the South London areas such as the Ghetto’s, for weekend entertainment.
The picture above shows FLK video shop back in the early 90’s with many titles that were not only RARE, but sought after by fans worldwide. We were renowned by the fans all over the world during this era as the front runner in aquiring the RARE titles for the very serious COLLECTORS.
Also FLK was known for RARE ENGLISH DUBBED Kung Fu movies that were originally in Chinese - which was very difficult to acquire.

WE have the track record and we know the genre well. We are second generation fans from the 70’s & 80’s - original old school fans given to us by our fathers who watched these classics on the big screen back in the 70’s and 80’s
