There are not really that are very similar to Monkey style kung fu, maybe drunken boxing with the flipping and rolling around.

As far as monkey style kungfu, Ihave seen a break form that uses monkey style flips and role but also drunken boxing mixed in. But i ve never seen a dojo for it.

If you're willing to look beyond Gung Fu, you may want to check out Capoeira.

It always weirds me out seeing martial arts being practiced with shoes. It makes way more sense to do so... but you know... tradition from other tends to make one prejudice.

The style appears to be effective! Low kicks are incredibly effective, and in my opinion, seem to be ignored in many styles training.
