Soft Paw Monkey
Opposing School: +1 vs Rock styles
Fearing reprisal from an angry cat kami, clergy of Meridian Temple prayed for a solution. To the luck of Buxist and sohei of the temple, the Monkey King answered the call bringing with him a horde of primates to an early morning training session. Soft Paw Monkey style combined the playful rambunctiousness of the monkeys with irritated swipes and bites. With climbing and jumping from high places, the temple guardians held against the possessed cats without doing them harm.
Benefit: Once per turn, maintaining this style grants a reroll to Athletic and Acrobatics rolls for movement (springing off walls, climbing, jumping, etc) or a reroll Test to throw, disarm, or trip foes.
Mastery: Springing up from Prone takes 1” of movement. If a martial artist falls, jumps, or drops from a higher elevation to attack a foe, the first 2” of Falling damage is ignored and is instead applied to the damage roll of a successful attack.
