Prerequisites: Aldori Dueling Disciple, Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Aldori dueling sword), Weapon Finesse, Weapon Focus (Aldori dueling sword), base attack bonus +5.

Benefit: When attempting a combat maneuver to bull rush or reposition a foe, you gain a +1 insight bonus on combat maneuver checks and a +4 dodge bonus to AC against any attack of opportunity you provoke. You also gain a +1 insight bonus to CMD against bull rush and repositionAPG attempts.

When you attempt a dueling dodge during a duel, your bonus to AC increases to +6.

To gain these benefits, you must be wielding only an Aldori dueling sword (not using a shield, an off-hand weapon, armor spikes, unarmed strikes, or natural weapons).
