Monk Attack 13Dance of the Stinging Hornet [Attack Technique]

You leap into the air and land on your foe’s back. From there, you rain blows on it.

Encounter        Full Discipline, Implement, Psionic
Standard Action      Melee touch

Target: One creature

Attack: Dexterity vs. Reflex

Hit: 2d10 + Dexterity modifier damage, and you grab the target. Until the grab ends, the target grants cover to you, and if it is larger than you, you can end a move action in its space. If you do so, the target isn’t immobilized by this grab, and you remain in its space when it moves (you don’t provoke opportunity attacks as you move with it). Until you leave the target’s space, its movement doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks from you.
