Following The Ways of The Drunken Master is not easy. Apart
from the Drinking bit thereof. Therein then and after. These Ways
bend and sway in Ways more so. So more unusual
is the consistent
Top-Ups too. To Keep in Top Gear. Drunkenly Defending. Self.
Master that Drive.
can in deed be Hard Work indeed. In the Annals
Of Yore. Martial Techniques can be found in
many Ways. Ways
that mimic Movements, Attitudes, Postures,
an Idealised Object/Creature. Many Animal Forms
and/or Styles within many Martial Arts. Arts
of Drunkenness too. To
simply and so understand the Hows
of this Art
is straightforward. Straight
as an Arrow and Focused You
MIND MUST BE... Whilst
Your BODY… Parties. On and Ons. Drunkenly.
That’s the Hard bit. Thereof. Herein too. To
and for. For
the purposes of Research and Alls that
jazzy stuff… i, Shiro
are Drinking. Drinking NOW. As i so writ. Hard
stuff so nomened
cos it’s liquidy soft, actually according to
My Senses of Finger.
Though tastes, bites pretty hard i, Shiro do, does
agree. There. With that.
On My Tongue. Also
Key Herein is this;
THINK… Then Drink…
AND Keep Thinking;..
Becoming The Flow…
Awareness is a State of Mind engendered when One
contemplates Arts of Self-Defence. As One Thinks of
Survival instinctively and flowing within, One sees merit
for applying common sensical, basic approaches.
The Act of Being... Drunk.
A Mind and Body State the Majority of Us Adults
have gone through. Go through
A Loss and Lack. Of Control ensues.
Of some and many Personality Characteristics.
Separation of Body + Mind... incomplete.
No Drunken… Master. Therein. That Glassy eyed View.
The Ancient Chinese Masters who Originated such Systems well
understood the Connection ‘tween Alcohol
and Violence In Our World. Legends Tell Tales so. Thus
When an Ego is so inflated and emboldened all
pretence of Civility disappears. Goes. Aways. Thus
To IMPRESS upon the Mind therefore the usual Civil Niceties.
The Kata and Forms of the Drunken Ways are ALWAYS Led
into with sufficient Prep, Intro. Attached. The Techniques
are not whimsical,..
following still the proper Respect of Tradition.
The emphasis is on Fluidity, Flexibility, Flowing Movements.
Each Showing/Highlighting a Change in Tactics/Response.
These are clearly tied to the Main Principles of such Systems
and the Unity of the Philosophies relating to Self-Defence.
Reflecting a (…GODAI... )
5 Element Concept.
5 Main Variations of The
- ♦ Tall
- ♦ Wooden
- ♦ Stone
- ♦ Lost
- ♦ Drunk
- ♦ Tall: Styles include less of the Tumbling arounds and mores of
Upper Body Level Combat Work combined with Pressure Point Targeting.
- ♦ Wooden: Styles include mores of the Grappling Combat Applications,
Techniques and Methods. Direct, Focused, almost Angry in Approach.
- ♦ Stone: Styles include mores of the Solid Defensive Works, Stances/Forms.
Upright, resilient, balanced, rigid and strong. Vital Areas Targeted.
- ♦ Lost: As is. An Art of strange,
almost awkward confused meanderings and Movements which
unleashes the Blocks, Strikes, Counters from surprising Directions/Timing.
The 5 Guiding Movement/Principles
of The Drunken Arts:
- ♦ Movement must be Unusual, Unpredictable, Upset the Opponent.
- ♦ Movement must Blind, Bluff, Fake and Feint.
- ♦ Movement must Scare, Surprise, Frighten the Opponent.
- ♦ Movement must Negate and Counter Attacks.
- ♦ Movement must be Drunkenly Deceptive, Disruptive.
- ♦ The Drunken Ways involve Flexible, Responsive, Flowing
Movements, with a somewhat wobbly, wonky...
Spring in Your Step. Staggering
in such Ways during such Actions;..
thus becomes an Added Power. Momentum Gathers.
That then. Falls per se. On and To Your Oppo.
Combining a Focused Intent and MindSet
that is. Is that
of Survival, Self-Defence… through and for…
ALLs Your Ways. Of Life. And
Partying Ons as well. Well as
adding Fitness, Flexibility (... Body + Mind…),
New Techniques that Flow.
To and for. Your Repertoire.
In Our World. Legends from those of the Martial Monkey King
have oft impressed, surprised
and entertained. The confusing actions, rolls and tumbles, falls
spills abound. Techniques that surprise with style and direction.
are very relaxed, intentionally reminded and taught
to be so. Even when
applying very strong and powerful actions. Fast
and efficient flowing, furious at times.
Smooth yet stuttered, upsetting concentration and
focus of Opponent.
The Monkey Movements so mimicked are brought forward
with the appropriate Facial Features contorted too. To ape
in deed such Animal
Ways as well. Well as. One must... look the part. Even
if alcoholised. To
the Max. Cheers and Hic. Hoorays. To that.
Other Natures of the Our World Drunken Styles
also can be found within Arts Martial
such as HUNG FUT
with the “…Drunken Immortal…” Forms therein.
Hung Fut also has a “...Left-Hand Fighting Form…”
for the ambidextrous. Of Us.
ZUI QUAN… The Drunken Fist… is another, so drunk
in such Ways.
A Combo of exotic WU-SHU and KUNG FU.
Combative Strikes and related Actions smoothly hide
Drunk like swaying Moves/Techniques.
Hand Postures oft resemble Cup Holding or Pouring Positions.
Acrobatic Techniques are also incorporated into stumbling,
staggering Steps, Leaps, Rolls, Tumbles.
Unorthodox. Great Visual Appeal as well. Well as
