Drunken Fist fighting stance used by Bo' Rai Cho in MK: Deadly Alliance

Zui Baxian Quan ("Drunken Eight Immortals Fist") or Zuiquan ("Drunken Boxing"), also known as Drunkard Boxing or Drunken Fist, is a category of techniques, forms and fighting philosophy in the Chinese martial arts that imitate a drunkard's movements. The postures are created by momentum and weight of the body, and imitation is generally through staggering and certain type of fluidity in the movements.

In Mortal Kombat

In Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Konquest mode, it's said that Master Bo' Rai Cho was the one to bring the Drunken Fist to Earthrealm.

Bo' Rai Cho uses the Drunken Fist as his primary fighting style in all his appearances through the series, for instance Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Deception, Unchained and Armageddon.

Konquest information

"The earliest reference to any drunken style is in the Sun Dynasty (960 - 1276 A.D.) Rumors indicate, however, that it was in fact Master Bo' Rai Cho who first brought the Drunken fighting style to Earthrealm centuries earlier while trying to thwart Shao Kahn's takeover of that realm."
