- 4 ranks: You can initiate a grapple without provoking an Attack of Opportunity. You can start a grapple off of a successful unarmed strike, as if you had Improved Grab.
- 9 ranks: You can attack your grappled opponents without penalty, so long as you are using a light weapon or unarmed strike. You can make an opposed Grapple check with these attacks rather than a normal attack roll, but you cannot threaten a critical hit if you do so.
- 14 ranks: Size bonuses don't apply in opposed grapple checks made by or against you.
- 19 ranks: Whenever a larger creature misses you, you can attempt to start a grapple with them as an Attack of Opportunity. You can only affect any given opponent with this ability once per round.
