The martial artist's connection to their armor becomes so great that the armor moves to intercept and incoming strike, reinforcing itself at the point of impact. When the charm is activated, the martial artist may choose one of the following effects:
- Halve all pre-soak damage from the attack.
- Counteract the effect of piercing, soaking damage from a piercing weapon with full soak instead of half.
- Add his Martial Arts to the armor's Hardness rating.
