I really doubt it (although I could be wrong). This might work for the one opening strike in a fight, but not any longer than that. If you successfully make that one strike a fight-ender, great; but if you don't, all those excruciatingly complex moves you've spent your life learning won't do you any more good than simple, regular ones. Definitely not worth making up a full system or even just a full taolu
, especially not one as difficult to master as any drunken one systematically is.
I can tell from sparring experience that a particularly awkward but soundly designed move can trigger a mistaken fight-or-flight reaction and connect, when a regular one would have been blocked or dodged. I consider this process (present in some Japanese systems as well, in a different form, and in capoeira too) to be the basic idea of zui-quan
Being currently studying an atrociously subtle drunken two-handed straightsword taolu
(from tanglang quan
), I can also testify that the mere hope to trick your opponent into underestimating you until your first strike connects isn't worth spending so much time on such %$£*§@}#&ç![definitely censored] forms.
Besides, unless you carry the drunken act to your whole life as a permanent thing (commendable dedication but not too practical
), I can hardly see how a potential opponent would be tricked by seeing you suddenly becoming drunk precisely at the moment when the hostile outcome becomes obvious... Definitely too many flaws in that doctrine.
