    I don't think this is complete but it was on about.com. I watch a lot of Jackie's films and there is a lot he knows that I don't see listed....

    The Martial Arts Background of Jackie Chan:

    Much of Chan's martial arts skills came from practicing the arts while at the Chinese Opera Research Institute, headed by Master Yu Jim Yuen. However, he did eventually train specifically in Hapkido, earning his blackbelt under Grandmaster Jin Pal Kim. All told, Chan has trained in Shaolin Kung-fu, Tae Kwon Do, and Hapkido.

    "He took his Hapkido seriously, practicing for hours at a time," said Kim according to article at Web-vue.com. In fact, Kim noted that Chan was one of the hardest working people he'd ever been around.

    If you go to Answers.com and put in "How many forms of martial arts does Jackie Chan know?" there is a "slide" file that has many more listed, including the various Kung Fu styles.

    From Chan's experience in films and with the mentioned Chinese Opera Institute, I would say he has "bits" of a wide variety of different kung-fu styles, which he could perform on demand or with minimal brush-up depending on the film he was doing at the time.

    Note that the "Movie-fu" material is a highly specialized discipline all on it's own, and incorporates elements of fight-scene choreography and in many cases, acrobatic wire-work and other techniques.

    Also, note that "Chinese Opera" is not a bunch of Asian folks singing.... Chinese opera is a rather spectacular entertainment that incorporates singing, music, dance, martial arts, acrobatics, etc.
