New Feat Ki Blast
You focus your ki into a ball of energy that you can hurl at an opponent.
          Prerequisites: Dex 13, Wis 13, Combat Martial Arts OR Improved Unarmed Strike, Ki, BAB +8
          Benefit: You can expend two daily uses of your Ki feat as a move action to create an orb of raw ki energy. You can then throw the seething orb as a standard action with a maximum range of 60 feet (no penalty). This ranged touch attack deals 3d6 + your Wis modifier damage. The ki orb is a force effect.
          If you fail to throw the orb before the end of your turn, it dissipates harmlessly.
          When you take this feat, you gain an additional daily use of ki.
          Special: You may also add your Str modifier to damage with this feat if you have the Inner Power feat. The only way to block a ki blast is with another ki blast. Should you block a ki blast with a natural 20, your ki blast carries through the blocked ki blast to hit your attacker; roll damage for both, subtracting your attacker’s ki blast damage from your own ki blast’s critical damage, and the remaining damage is subtracted from your attacker’s current hit points.

New Signature Martial Arts Maneuver Feat Shoryuken (Ansatsuken)
You channel your ki into an immense rising uppercut attack.
          Prerequisites: Ansatsuken, Uppercut
          Benefit: Your Uppercut attack inflicts an extra die of damage, does 1.5x Str mod on damage, and its threat range is increased by one. If you miss this attack, you must make a DC 15 Jump check or risk an attack of opportunity (if you succeed at the Jump check, you are flat-footed until the start of your next turn). You may only use this maneuver once per round.

New Martial Arts Mastery Ansatsuken “Assassination Fist”
          History: A Japanese martial art rooted as an art of assassination. This art stems from traditional karate (e.g. shotokan), but focuses more heavily on ki focus, special repeated maneuver combinations, and the signature shoryuken (“rising dragon punch”). Famous practitioners of this martial art in the Street Fighter universe include Akuma and Gen.
          Prerequisite: Combat Martial Arts
          Effect: You are proficient in punch and kick attacks, and are considered armed while making these attacks. This feat adds Jump and Meditation to your list of class skills, and allows you to use Circle Kick multiple times in a single combination (i.e. tatsumaki senpuu kyaku or "whirlwind kick"). Ansatsuken is an external style whose attacks are modified by Strength.

ANSATSUKEN
          Mastery: Accurate Kick 1, Accurate Punch 1, Accurate Punch 2, Hard Kick 1, Hard Punch 1, Hard Punch 2, Ki Focus 1, Ki Focus 2, Ki Focus 3
          Bonus Feats: Acrobatic, Alertness, Athletic, Axe Kick, Back Kick, Block, Body Blow, Circle Kick, Combat Expertise, Combat Reflexes, Dodge, Elbow Slam, Great Fortitude, Heart Punch, Hip Throw, Improved Block, Jab, Jump Kick, Leg Sweep, Poise, Power Attack, Snap Kick, Sunder, Thigh Kick, Toughness, Uppercut.

Ki Focus 1
You may use your ki one additional time per day.

Ki Focus 2
You may use your ki one additional time per day.

Ki Focus 3
You may begin to charge latent energies (usually sparked by deep or strong emotions) lying dormant in your ki. Each round that you spend charging your ki as a move action, up to a number of rounds equal to your Wisdom modifier, you increase your threat range and critical multiplier by that amount until you make your next attack. You must also expend a daily use of ki for each round you spend charging. You may take no other actions while charging your ki each round other than a single move action and speaking, though you may defend yourself as normal (including the use of full defense as a standard action). For example, if your Wis mod was +3, you normally threatened a critical hit on 20, and you charged your ki using move actions on each of three consecutive rounds (expending 3 daily uses of ki), you would threaten on a natural 17-20 and inflict x5 damage should your next attack be a critical hit. Of course, charging your ki for fewer rounds is also possible. This attack may be melee or ranged. Your next attack must come on the following round after you charge your ki, though any ki uses are unspent if no attack occurs.
          Note: For more on these rules, see Blood and Fists for the d20 Modern game.
