You move with the speed and finesse of an avian hunter, your sweeping blocks and graceful motions allowing you to deflect melee attacks with ease.
Prerequisites: Crane Style, Dodge, Improved Unarmed Strike, base attack bonus +5 or monk level 5th.
Benefit: Once per round while using Crane Style, when you have at least one hand free and are either fighting defensively or using the total defence action, you can, as an immediate action, deflect one melee weapon attack that would normally hit you. You cannot deflect melee weapons larger than you; you must also be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. An attack so deflected deals no damage and has no other effect (instead, treat it as a miss). You do not expend an action when using this feat.
Note: A light weapon is a weapon two size categories smaller than its wielder, a one-handed weapon is a weapon one size category smaller than its wielder, and a two-handed weapon is a weapon of the same size category as its wielder. A natural weapon is treated as a light weapon.
