Firebird style of martial arts is a patient style, focusing on elaborate defenses. It waits for an opponent to make a mistake on the offense, and punishes their mistake with either a terrifying fiery grapple, or many hits to their opponent's pressure points while they are open. It combines many different forms to this end.
Crane Style - When fighting defensively, you take -1 to attack, and gain +3 to AC (+4 with 3 ranks in Acrobatics). In addition, while fighting defensively, once per round if a melee attack hits you, you may deflect it and take no damage, and then take an attack of opportunity against the offender.
Dragon Style - The practical uses of the Dragon style boil down to the power, but also the mastery of the Elemental Fist technique that comes along with it, allowing for devastating Fire attacks. (Elemental Fist deals +4d6 damage)
Snapping Turtle Style - Using one hand for defense allows the other to find pressure points more easily. The circular blocks of the Snapping Turtle style also allow for easy grapples when an opponent misses. This is a deadly combination with Crane Style, allowing any melee attack thrown at the user to become a weapon. +3 Shield Bonus to AC and CMD, and a missed attack triggers a free grapple.
Mantis Style - Holding their attacking hand in a point allows to strike their targets precisely - right where they hurt.
