Reverse Grip
Short Blade (Boost)
Level: 1
Initiation Action: Swift
Range: Personal
Target: Self
Duration: 1 round

You flip your weapon into a reverse grip, blade pointing down. Now you can deflect things like tonfas, and take advantage of the sudden change in stance.

For 1 round you gain a +2 shield bonus for each light weapon your wield (up to a maximum of two if two-weapon fighting). This bonus stacks with itself, but not other shield bonuses. In addition, any attacks have a 50% chance of counting the target as flatfooted for feats and abilities (but not AC) as you quickly switch up positions as you fight.
