Bokai Martial Arts specializes in the use of blunt weapons, particularly the use of Bokai sticks. It does also teach the use of knives and short swords. Bokai is almost unknown in the galaxy; one who wishes to study Bokai will have to travel to one of the sparsely scattered schools of the Inner Rim.
RPG D6 Stats
For every +1 pip that a character increases her martial arts skill, she may pick one of the techniques from the list of the martial style in which their character specializes. Learning a technique from outside a style costs 10 character points and takes three weeks of training. Characters whose martial arts skill is increased during character creation are eligible to select from the hand-to-hand techniques. Characters must also declare which hand-to-hand technique they are using prior to making the required skill roll (unless otherwise indicated).
