    i think that's what it's called, or maybe someone can educate me and tell me the traditional title. it's played in several kung fu films, even when there's no drunkenness.

    seriously... loves how it goes off @ the 2:00 mark



    great training scene, btw

    i really wish someone would upload yuen biao's from knockabout though. similar but vastly superior in my eyes...

    Drunken style kung fu is the most amazing form of martial arts, imo.

    wong fei hung theme... just read it in the comments

    yeah, i've heard better themes, but this one just holds a special place for me... it's hypnotic, memorable, and perfect for meditation/training

    word @ hypnotic & memorable

    although its gritty and focused, it still has a slight imperial flair to it

    respectable

    well-said @ x-cal


    LP, i like that piece too, but this one is more eternal for me... i can see if you prefer that one more, but "so much" better? don't see it lol

    i've had both of those tunes playing in my head when fatigue starts to set in during a workout and they give me a second wind... along with ennio morricone's ecstasy of gold' and the theme from the spaghetti western day of anger that plays at the beginning of invincible armour during hwang jang-lee's session. i'm sure you're familiar with it since i remember you listing that film as one of your faves.

    peep it in its original title sequence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3u8FJxGtVZk

    simply amazing
