Drunken Kung Fu is one of the most unique and engaging styles of Chinese Martial Arts. Swaying and staggering movements imitate a drunk person in a similar way that other styles imitate the movements of animals. The characteristic movements of this Martial Art are used to generate power from the movement of the hips and the core abdominal strength, which is channeled into strikes.
The style is also based upon deception, because the opponent will often underestimate you, and in striking when your opponent least expects it. It can also be used to lull the opponent into a false sense of security, thinking that the drunken fighter is in no fit state to defend themselves, or to tempt the opponent into making a particular attack, believing that the practitioner is unprepared for them.
This style is not really a complete martial art in itself. It is, rather, a style of fighting that is present in many different Chinese martial arts. Many different schools of kung fu have a drunken form, or incorporate elements of this style.
These kung fu techniques contain great force and power that is derived from the core abdominal muscles and hips that create circular movements and the momentum of continuous, broad movements. In the 8 drunken immortals style of drunken kung fu there is an elaborate mythology which goes hand in hand with the physical training, and each of the eight forms is based upon the life and personality of one of 8 drunken immortals, a group of wise men and women who traveled across China in ancient times celebrating life and getting into various adventures.
