Monk is a core class focusing on intrinsic control of the body and spirit.

From the Rulebook

Shaolin and Buddhist temples manned by fighting monks who learned to fight with their hands and strange implements when their warlords forbade them to use swords are the classic image of this class. However, many Asiatic and American tribes had strong traditions of wrestling, and the Shogun-era Japanese had a plethora of armed warrior monks whose wrath was feared by even the emperor.
