    Shaolin Drunken Kung Fu

    I am extremely interested in Shaolin Drunken Kung Fu. First, because Shaolin Kung Fu is extremely good, and second because Drunken Kung Fu is for me.

    I have been self training and was wondering if any of you think I should do this form and what level and experience you would recomend someone be at before they try this form(I feel I am very capable, but want your input).

    I am extremely grateful for any information you have to offer.

    Yeah, That is a problem, especially the falling part of the style, without a trainer, I could easily ijure myself.

    thanks

    One point to remember is not to get too drunk. Only kidding :)

    I have heard that drunken boxing is quite an advanced art and can be very hard to get right. However, once you get it right it is extremely difficult to fight against because of its unpredictability.

    I believe that for the Shaolin style of drunken boxing you probably also need strong legs and a flexible back.

    Oh ya drunken is great... abandit is right getting the attitude of drunken is very hard but once you get it its a great art to fight with.. and one of the great things about it is when you do get the attitude you can mix it with other shaolin systems like monkey or mantis even tiger so you would get drunken monkey, drunken mantis etc.. which would make the style even more powerfull.. i have learned some drunken forms but i still havent got the attitude properly yet.. and it is very unpredictable thats what makes it so powerfull..

    agreed, ope

    Unpredictability and the commitment (and resulting power) of the strikes.

    I'm a Bagua practitioner, but my teacher is torturing me with a drunken set (been working on it for about 4 weeks now). Drunken Bagua? Now THAT would be odd..:)

    thanks

    Yeah, it would be unpredictable, which is why I want to learn it. I have tried some moves and I dont know why, but feel I could do it. So I wanted to thank everyone for viewing and/or replying, your input is very helpful.

    Sweet

    I'd say definantly go fo it. Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger... right?? I'm also really interested in the Drunken style, but I can't find anything, or anybody to teach me about it. All I know is what I've seen in the movies.

    I am also intrested in drunken styles. I have looked, but there are no schools that teach drunken kung fu in my area. Does anyone recomend the series in martialartsmart.com , or maybe another website?

    Where do you guys live? Usually to learn drunken boxing you have to have at least a couple years in another style as a base. You should try to take modern wushu or some wide open northern style until you find what you're looking for. Modern Ditang will be a great asset if you find a teacher for drunken boxing. I'd also recomend buying the shaolin drunken boxing video(the one by the monk) so you can see the type of stuff you'd be learning. I think this routine is pretty much the same as the modern one. I wouldn't recomend learning without a teacher though since drunken boxing is REALLY hard physically. Too much chance of injurey.

    click here for a website that has some drunken routines.

    Sorry, but do you guys mean Wushu drunken style, or actual shaolin drunken because I thought that there isn't shaolin drunken fist.

    I've only heard of drunken style being taught within a larger system. The Shaolin Drunken Fist done by the current shaolin monks is the same as that done by modern wushu guys. I don't know anything about drunken fist history.

    Here's that link again:

    No offence, but..

    COME ON!

    That drunken vid was the most ridiculous thing I've seen in my life. The guy is just staggering around the stage, waving his hands, doing some flashy jump kicks and occasionally falling to the ground and doing some stupid acrobatics.

    What ever you do, don't think that that BS has anything to do with real drunken styles, which are integrated in traditional CMA like Choy lee fut.
