Zui Quan (醉拳; "Drunken Fist") is a category of techniques, forms and fighting philosophy that appear to imitate a drunkard's movements.


Even though the style seems irregular and off balance, Zui Quan techniques are highly acrobatic, and require a great degree of skill, balance and coordination. The postures are created by momentum and weight of the body, and imitation is generally through staggering and certain type of fluidity in the movements. It is considered to be among the most difficult wushu styles to learn due to the need for powerful joints and fingers.

To excel, one must be relaxed and flow with ease from one technique to another. 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.
