Tao of the Monkey
Basic Qi Form [Tao]
Prerequisites: Qi Rank 4
Disciplines: Yang
No Action
Effect: You channel the exuberant energy of the monkey into your limbs, adapting its style of movement. You may use the following modifiers with your Qi Strike:
Tumbling [Opener]
Cost: REC +2, 1 Stamina
Effect: You rapidly approach your enemy with seemingly impractical and reckless movements, yet enemies find it difficult to hit you. Before the attack, move up to your Skirmish speed. You may make Tumble checks during this movement to potentially avoid obstacles and Attacks of Opportunity (and they do not reduce the distance of your move).

Uppercut [Finisher]
Cost: 1 Stamina
Effect: You position yourself underneath a foe by coiling into a relaxed squat. Suddenly, you drive upwards with a curving vertical strike aimed at a sensitive area. On a hit, the target is Dazed for 1d4 segments.
