Drunken Boxing or Drunken Kung Fu refers to the group of kung fu styles where you behave erratically like a drunk to deceive, distract and attack the opponent. Other kung fu styles such as Choy Li Fut, Praying Mantis and Monkey Kung Fu have some form of drunken boxing form in them, but Jackie Chan has popularized the classic drunken boxing style, the Eight Drunk Immortals Form above all others in his movies.
Although it appears erratic and uncertain, the always shuffling footwork in the Eight Drunk Immortals Form is extremely well thought out - Because your center of gravity is constantly shifting, you could deflect or evade any hit that could not be blocked easily. A moving target is harder to hit than a static one. Further, the more the opponent is preoccupied trying to figure you out, the less time he has in his mind to think about a plan of attack.
In addition to evading, you can use the dynamic footwork to mask your dominant foot for combination kicking. By being constantly in motion, you can easily launch strikes without broadcasting your intent to your opponent, since your entire body is moving already. In Drunken Boxing you use the power technique known as Zian Shi Gin to cause damage. This is a type of piraling/drilling energy that comes from turning your body into any hit.
The eight forms of the Eight Drunken Immortals are:
Lu Don Bin
Li Tit Kwai
Han Zhong Li
Lan Cai He
Zhang Guo Lao
Cao Guo Jiu
Han Xiang Zi
He Xian Gu

Venerated as a Taoist God, Lu lived at the time of the Tang Dynasty (705-800AD), from Shanxi Province. Legend has it that he had tried to become a government official, but failed the qualification exams. He fell into a long sleep thereafter and woke up 18 years later only to find that all his family members had passed away. He remained a disappointed man for most of his life. However, at old age he met Han Zhong Li (another member of the Eight Immortals), who introduced him to the way of the Tao.
Finally finding the meaning of life, Lu took to Taoism greatly and founded a Taoist sect. This became the biggest de-facto Taoist sect in China, and he therefore is also known as Lu Zu (Lu, The Ancestor of Tao). Despite his stature, he remained close to the people and traveled far and wide around China to perform Taoist blessings and exorcisms.
Today, Lu is the most well known and loved of the Eight Immortals, and is the leader of the group. The Chinese commemorate him on his birthday, the 14th day of the fourth lunar month and pay homage to him as the patron deity of barbers and hair dressers.
In pictures, Lu Don Bin is presented as a youthful scholarly man. He carried with him a Hu Lao, a wine gourd and wears a Taoist Hat. He carries with him a mystical dragon sword that grants him the power of invisibility and allows him to dispel evil.
