Zui Quan (Drunkard Chuan)

In Zui Quan or the drunkard Chuan, boxers' falter, waddle, fall and sway just like drunkards.

Zui Quan can be used for both fighting and maintaining health. However, the drunkard boxers go out of their way to stress the combative side of their style. They blend a series of movements, actions and skills of the martial arts and try to confuse their opponents with special skills which often lead them to surprise triumphs.

Execution of the drunkard Chuan demands extreme flexibility of the joints as well as suppleness, dexterity, power and coordination all of which can be developed in the course of practice.
The main feature of the drunkard Chuan is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent. The secret of this style of Chuan is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.

Drunkard boxers are required to be responsive with good eyesight and fist plays. They move in unconnected steps but with a flexible body combining hardness and suppleness. They have to be fast to get the better of their opponents but their main tactic is to feign defence while trying to attack and aiming in one direction but attacking in another. Various degrees of drunkenness are demonstrated by different ranges of movements and expressions in the eye.
