maybe google or wikipedia can help you out??
Other than acting similar to a monkey and movement designed to dodge many oncoming attacks I can't really tell you much about monkey kung fu.

I study and teach monkey style as part of the kung fu system I have studied for 25 years.
The monkey is among the most agile of animals with arms as strong as its legs. It leaps and rolls then grabs and strikes with amazing rapidity. The style is ideally suited to short individuals as the monkey is adept at grabbing an opponent, pulling them down to it's level then delivering rapid fire strikes and kicks. It is a playful creature that taunts its prey then comes in under an attack and uses short range strikes and throws often rolling over the opponent when hes on the floor. It is a physically demanding style to learn but develops agility, quick thinking and the ability not to take life too seriously.
