One chosen opponent can’t make active Dodges against your next Martial Arts attack and damage from this attack can’t be reduced with Toughness or Armor. Opponents somehow inmune to Fu powers or Martial Arts attacks would be affected by the attack, but you must first succeed at a Chi check with a Difficulty of opponent’s Chi. This Fu is canceled if you don’t attack that opponent as your next action after this Fu has been activated.
