Drunken kung fu is a style of martial art made famous to those in the west by films such as Jackie Chan’s “The Legend of Drunken Master.” The style typically entails techniques that are difficult to telegraph or read. It elicits an unpredictable style of striking that allows for an unorthodox approach to combat.
The practitioner largely held his own in the mixed martial arts bout, though he ultimately was met with a loss to the fighter. The fighter quickly brought his opponent to the mat, sinking in an armbar for a hopeful finish.
