Drunken Fist – Zui quan

Drunken Fist Boxing

Drunken Fist Boxing (Zui Quan)

Drunken Fist Boxing (Zui Quan) is the hardest among Chinese Martial Arts styles. This style aims at getting the enemy distracted through irregular and off-balance movements. Regardless of its legendary origins and its weird-looking movements, Drunken Fist Boxing is very useful for giving the fighter the ability to fight and attack in any condition.

Probably the most bizarre but choreographic of all Martial Arts styles, Drunken Fist Boxing is mysterious like its origin. It is also called the Boxing of the Eight Drunkards, taking this name from the legends surrounding the Taoistic period where Drunken Boxing was born. Following their Taoistic heritage, these eight immortals show not the pleasure of drinking but the ability to blend sobriety with skills and as a consequence of this, attaining enlightenment as fluidity and freedom of movement.
