    Drunken Fist

    Excuse me if a thread about this has already been made. I have searched and found none that specifically talk about the topic but always found this form of Kung Fu to be interesting. Even if it isn't the most efficient, though I still think it holds efficiency, it allows you to practice both flexibility and being unpredictable. So that's why this art fascinates me.



    It's an interesting style in my opinion and it's very smooth while being unpredictably balanced.

    Here's a thread:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=62950

    Modern wushu, although enjoyable to watch, is not combat effective. What you posted is a performance form that has zero combat applicability. The above thread will address every comment you may have about its history, its creation, whether it is legit and other minor questions.

    No, he doesn't want to read far enough in the thread to get the information he wants.

    The one I linked has a TON of pages. After the initial bickering it gets to everything he addressed in his OP. He stopped reading.

    Ah nice distinction, I read that differently.

    I figured there had to be at least half a dozen or so prominent ones with "drunken fist" in the title, without even looking.

    He's just too lazy to read then.

    Man, the people of this forum are nice aren't they. I typed Drunken in search and could not find the thread from list start to end.

    I typed in Drunken for my search by the way, to assure that I'd find it and it did not show up for me.

    Also, the other thread just talks about how it's bullshit. There is practicality in learning the art, even if we're not talking fighting. The other thread, from my understanding just talks about how it's "bullshit". But there's no talk about what benefits it can have in helping you. Not to mention that eventually, everyone starts to talk about Wushu being bullshit. But is this site only about who can beat who's ass instead of what can be learned from different styles?

    Also, the thread starts harassing a member instead of telling him whether he's wrong or right about something in a calm, curteous manner. Man, this site really knows how to run it's self. It's not even that you're blunt, you're jerks about things too. How the Hell do any of you expect anyone to listen if you have nothing good to say and you aren't going to give respect saying it?

    An old saying

    "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all."


    Anyways, I still see practicality in Drunken Fist (Zui Quan). Even if you can't kick someone's ass with it, it's still a great way to learn unpredictability and flexibility. Just because something isn't used in fighting, doesn't make it worthless. Look at Yoga.

    Also, it's not lazyness. If you see that something is going nowhere, it's only fair to assume that it never will go anymore. Especially by page 15.

    I think the worst part is, even after I apologized at the start, just to ASSURE I wouldn't have to deal with harassment, it still happens. Listen, I already have a low self esteem, why make it worse? Can you, and this is all I ask, PLEASE be nice about something? Anything? That's all I'm asking. Pretty please, with SUGAR on top?

    I put "drunken fist" and got many results, go figure.

    You need to read this:

    Oh, and you're a hypocrite.

    Old sayings eh? How about 'you've got to be cruel to be kind'.

    So you're not actually apologising, you're just trying to avoid criticism?!
    Dum spiro, spero.
    Tada gan iarracht.
