    I haven't heard of any place in the country that has a good drunken fist program.

    What are you looking for in a martial art.

    If it is strictly performance, go to a good modern wushu school.

    Is it this guy?

    http://www.mykungfuschool.com

    He used to have a sign reading "Eight Drunken Immortals" in his window, but now it looks like he founded his own style.

    Never popped in though I walk by often, as I have giggling problems already.

    Drunken fist is actually not an independent style of Chinese Martial Arts.

    Not to go off-topic, but does Drunken Fist even have any valuable fighting applications? Or is it mostly made of principles to be interpreted in different ways? Anyone here has any experience with any styles of it?

    Well, if you were attacked by Rivington, he would pee himself laughing.

    The "lazy cat" stance is considered a drunken technique and very closely resembles a type of boxing stance, only with the feet angled more toward the same direction.

    Just an interesting sidenote.
