In this style, the learner falter, waddle, falls and sway just like drunkards. Drunken Boxing is beneficial in both fighting and maintaining good health. However, the drunkard boxers go out of their way to stress the combative side of their style. It takes a lot of perseverance to learn a series of movements and actions to attain the required fighting skills.
