History
Zui quan (Traditional and Simplified Chinese: 醉拳; pinyin: zužquŠn) Is a concept in traditional Chinese martial arts, as well as a classification of modern Wushu forms. Literally meaning "drunken fist", the term is also commonly translated as drunken boxing or drunkard's boxing. In Chinese it is sometimes called zuijiuquan (Chinese: 醉酒拳; pinyin: zužjiuquŠn, literally "drunken alcohol fist"). The techniques were traditionally considered unsuitable for women due to cultural attitudes regarding excessive drinking among women.

Style
Even though the style seems irregular and off balance it takes the utmost balance to be successful. To excel one must be relaxed and flow with ease from technique to technique. Swaying, drinking, and falling are used to throw off opponents. When the opponent thinks the drunken boxer is vulnerable he is usually well balanced and ready to strike. When swigging a wine cup the practitioner is really practicing grabbing and striking techniques. The waist movements trick opponents into attacking, sometimes even falling over. Falls can be used to avoid attacks but also to pin attackers to the ground while vital points are targeted.
