Make a Martial Arts Attack that can’t be actively Dodged against an opponent that has attacked you unsuccessfully this shot hand-to-hand. Use that opponent's Strength attribute as your own for this attack. This has no effect on your current shot.

|Flailing Branches||Chi Cost: 1||Shot Cost: 3|
If blinded, in the dark, or fighting an invisible opponent, make a Martial Arts task check (Difficulty is your opponent’s DV); if successful, you suffer no penalties to your hand-to-hand Martial Arts AV against that opponent this sequence for those reasons.

|Wind through the Leaves||Chi Cost: 2||Shot Cost: Special (0)|
You may use your Fu attribute instead of your Perception for noticing ambushes and unexpected attacks. If successful, add the Outcome to your Active Dodge value against the first attack from such sources. Fu cost is subtracted from your available Fu points at the beginning of first sequence of combat.
|Prerequisite: Flailing Branches||Path: Sticky Branches|
|Sticky Branches||Chi Cost: 5||Shot Cost: 3|
Strike an opponent with a barehanded Martial Arts attack. If successful, you deal no damage; instead, your opponent subtracts the Outcome from her AV and Dodge values when fighting against you until end of sequence, or you attack anybody else, or you do an active Defense, whichever comes first. Sticky Branches may not be used twice on the same opponent in the same sequence.
