    Flurry of Blows: Can be used with Standard Action attacks. Gain the extra one (or two with Greater Flurry) extra attack(s) and suffer the penalty on all attacks.

    Ki Strike (Magic) (Su): Gain a +1 enhancement bonus on Unarmed Strikes. Improves by one every five levels.

    Lotus Strike (Ex): Can substitute Wisdom modifier on attack and damage rolls with Unarmed Strikes and special Monk weapons.

    Feather Body (Sp): Can use Feather Fall at will, self only.

    Mantis Jump (Ex): At level five, a Monk learns the Mantis Technique. She gains a +10 enlightened bonus on all Jump checks. This bonus improves by ten every five levels.

    Enlightened Body (Ex): A sixth level Monk has reached a stage of enlightenment where she realizes that food is an unnecessary burden on the soul. She no longer needs to eat to survive. At level eleven, she realizes that sleep is also just an illusion which she can transcend. By level sixteen, she has all but left the trapping of mortal needs behind and no longer even breathes.

    Ki Strike (Aligned) (Su): A Monk who possesses a Lawful, Good, or Evil alignment can treat her Unarmed Strikes as weapons of that type for overcoming damage reduction.

    Tiger Pounce (Ex): By level nine, a Monk has learned the Tiger Technique and Pounce on a charge.

    Abundant Step (Sp): At level 10, a Monk has learned how to magically slip between spaces. She can use Dimension Door, as the spell, once every 1d4 rounds, self only. This is a move-equivalent action, and her caster level is equal to one half her Monk level.

    Ki Strike (Keen) (Ex): Gain Improved Critical (Unarmed Strike) as a bonus feat. Unarmed Strikes can do slashing damage if desired.

    Diamond Soul (Su): Gain SR equal to 10 + Monk level + Wisdom modifier.

    Cat Stride (Ex): By level 12, a Monk has learned the Cat Technique and can step softly and carefully. She gains a +20 enlightened bonus to all Balance and Move Silently checks.

    Quivering Palm (Su): Usable a number of times per week equal to Wisdom modifier.

    Eyes of the Divine (Su): A seventeenth level Monk has spent so much time meditating on the truths of the universe that she can now detect falsehoods on sight alone. She gains permanently active True Seeing.

    Empty Body (Sp): Can use Ethereal Jaunt, as the spell, a number of times per day equal to her Wisdom modifier. Caster level equal to Monk level.

    Ki Strike (Vorpal) (Su): Unarmed Strikes as as if they had the Vorpal enchantment, but only when dealing slashing damage.

    Perfect Self (Su): Type changes to Outsider. Keep all subtypes and gain the Native subtype. Gain DR10/chaotic, +4 Wisdom, +2 Dex, and +2 Con.
