Full Drunken Master [EXCLUSIVE]
Drunken Master (Chinese: 醉拳; lit. 'drunken fist') is a 1978 Hong Kong martial arts comedy film directed by Yuen Woo-ping, and starring Jackie Chan, Yuen Siu-tien, and Hwang Jang-lee. It was a success at the Hong Kong box office, earning two and a half times the amount of Yuen's and Chan's previous film, Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, which was also considered a hit.
Full Drunken Master
It is an early milestone of the kung fu comedy genre, and helped make Jackie Chan famous in Asia. The film popularised the Zui Quan ("drunken fist") infused with unique animal fighting style. In 2017, it was ranked number 3 on GamesRadar's list of 50 greatest kung fu movies of all time. It spawned an official sequel, Drunken Master II (1994), and several spin-offs. It had a significant cultural impact, inspiring numerous later films, music, manga, anime and video games.
Yim is known for his "Devil's Kick", a swift and deadly kicking style which has never been defeated. Wong provokes and challenges him to a fight and is soundly defeated and humiliated. He makes his way back to Beggar So and decides to commit himself to the Drunken Master's training program. The training resumes and soon Wong learns Beggar So's secret style of martial arts, a form of Drunken Boxing called "The Eight Drunken Immortals", named after the eight xian that the fighting style references. Wong masters seven of the eight styles with the exception of Drunken Miss Ho's as he feels that her style of fighting is too feminine.
Meanwhile, Yim Tit-sam is contracted by a business rival to kill Wong's father. Wong's father fights with Yim and is defeated and injured by him. Wong and Beggar So arrive on time and Wong continues the fight with Yim. Beggar So promises not to interfere in the fight. Wong employs the new skills he has learned and outmatches Yim's kicking style. Yim then resorts to his secret technique, the Devil's Shadowless Hand, which is too fast for Wong to defeat. Wong confesses that he did not master the last style so Beggar So tells him to combine the seven styles and create his own version of the last style. Wong follows the instruction and discovers his own unique style of Drunken Miss Ho, which he uses to overcome the Shadowless Hand and finally defeats Yim.
Not all films that feature the Zui Quan "Drunken Fist" style (or variations on it) can be considered as imitators of the Drunken Master films. Films such as Drunken Monkey (2002) may feature a drunken style of kung fu, and in the case of The Forbidden Kingdom (2008), the same principal star, but they have a fundamentally different plot and sufficiently different title to separate them from Drunken Master.

Parents need to know that the movie features non-stop fighting, mostly of the cartoon variety. One important character is killed, but most of the time the characters are unhurt or, if they are hurt, the wounds disappear before the next scene. There are are few uses of "s--t" and other profanities. Some parents will be concerned about "drunken boxing," in which liquor affects Fei-Hong the way spinach affects Popeye. As Fei-Hong's father tells him, though, "A boat can float in water -- and sink in it." And when Fei-Hong overdoes the liquor, he is very sorry. Fei-Hong's father beats him and disowns him, but later takes him back with love and pride. Fei-Hong has a warm relationship with his young and beautiful stepmother, but she is very manipulative, faking crying to get her way.
THE LEGEND OF THE DRUNKEN MASTER is a sequel to the movie that made Jackie Chan an international star. Though it was made 15 years later than the first, it takes place immediately after the first, set in turn-of-the-century China. Wong Fei-Hong (Chan) is the son of a distinguished and wealthy doctor. As they board a crowded train following the purchase of herbs, Fei-Hong hides the container of ginseng in another man's luggage, to avoid paying duty. Fei-Hong's package is exchanged for one containing a valuable antique box. This leads to the discovery that many antiquities are being smuggled out of the country. Fei-Hong is a specialist in "drunken boxing" (using liquor to "make the body looser and its pain threshhold higher"), and he uses his fighting skill to take on the bad guys.
Drunken Master played a major role in launching Jackie Chan's acting career in Hong Kong. The martial arts comedy developed a lasting reputation as one of the genre's best. Its popularity led to the studio behind the movie deciding to produce a sequel nearly two decades later. In 1994, Golden Harvest released The Legend of the Drunken Master, which put Chan back in the starring role. In both movies, the actor played Wong Fei-hung, a heavy-drinking kung fu expert who employs a "drunken style" of Chinese martial arts.
In Drunken Master, the main character's consumption of alcohol was integral to the plot. Similar to how drunken boxing works in other kung fu movies, Chan's Wong always fought at his best when in an intoxicated state. So in a sense, Drunken Master pointed to there being a positive side of heavy drinking. In his autobiography, Never Grow Up, Chan explained that he was "horrified" at this element of the story upon rewatching the movie. He felt that Drunken Master was essentially teaching people to fight drunk. According to him, he corrected a "mistake" from his past by ensuring that The Legend of the Drunken Master (also known as Drunken Master II) delivered a better message.
As Chan notes in Never Grow Up, Golden Harvest's Drunken Master II doesn't take the same approach to drinking as its processor. While Wong continues to use drunken boxing in the sequel, the movie doesn't make light of his drinking. In fact, it draws attention to his addiction and the problems it's caused for both his family and health. He even loses a fight because of it. Unlike the original film, The Legend of the Drunken Master forced Wong to face the unfortunate consequences that come with this lifestyle in real life. Not only was he hurting himself, but the people around him were suffering as well.
Wong ultimately decided to give up alcohol for good, but the threat of losing to the main villain in Drunken Master II's final fight led to Jackie Chan's Wong Fei-hung using drunken boxing one more time. But instead of this scene being depicted as Wong simply relapsing, the moment was interpreted as a form of sacrifice. The hero understood the personal toll drinking would take on him if he broke his vow not to drink. Following his victory, it was learned during the movie's ending that drinking had resulted in permanent brain damage. While this served as a sad conclusion to his two-movie arc, it also paid off his story in a way that didn't brush off his previous mistakes.
This is an advanced Shaolin Form Taolu, there are lots of advanced kicks (such as tornado kick, butterfly kick and more) and ground combat techniques in this form. Also mastering the drunken emotion, drunken steps and eyes are also a more advanced part of the Shaolin kung fu training.
If you aim to train a set a week you will be able to learn the form in 4 - 5 weeks, that is only learning the form, to master the form it will take a lot more practice after you have learned the form; so after you have gone through the course, go back and practice the sections by training the consolidation sessions at the end of each set.
Our advice is to not be caught up in doing the perfect kicks whilst learning training this form, some of you may find that you are not yet able to do some of the kicks, that is ok, for now the key is to concentrate on the flow of the form, in the learning sessions Shifu Yan Xin will show you how to do alternative movement for harder kicks so you can do that whilst you still learning. After you have learned this form really well then you can progress on to focus on mastering the kicks.
This course is best for students who has already done some foundation kung training, it is an advanced level course, but for those of you who are eager to start it is possible as the course is broken down to bite size steps enabling anyone to learn, but you may find it harder to master the form.
When somebody consumes alcohol, they become much more proficient at their discipline of choice, be it fighting, studying, writing... you name it. If it involves skill, that skill will be magnified tenfold when the character is drunk. Given what may seem the obvious drawbacks of drunkenness in general, this trope may bear some relation to a Disability Superpower. Some individuals, particularly artsy types, may attribute such miracle abilities to other substances.
