"My Kung Fu is the strongest!"

A monk subclass inspired by the iconic "Bring It" trope of tv and movies about martial arts.

My basic questions: Are the features fun and flavorful? Do they scale and balance fairly?

It is an interesting concept, but I see a couple of issues here.

First off: remove the ability to use flurry of blows without spending ki points. The other benefits of the boast are already powerful enough. If you still wanted to buff the offensive potential, you could instead increase the effect of a flurry of blows, rather than removing the cost.

The other problem I see is that the whole subclass is a little one-note. Since every ability you get is related to your boast, then any situation in which it isn't an appealing option ruins the whole idea of the class. You may want to consider giving at least one ability that could perhaps interact with the boast, but isn't a straight buff to it.

Other than that, it looks fairly well thought out and a cool sub-class.
