This is a weapon, but this could be one too

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level spending 1 ki point, so long as you have both hands free, you may pick up an item from around you to make an attack to knock out an enemy if they are at half health must make a DC 8+Prof+wis and at 1/5 health they are knocked out. (This only acts as if they were put to sleep) Improvised weapons share martial arts damage.

Improvised Defense

By 11th level, As a reaction can pick up, if there is anything within reach to block an attack, the item, if not something of decent density, is then destroyed and cannot be used again, this is at the DM’s discretion of what the player finds to block. If item has an explosion or splatter element everything within a five-foot radius takes the damage, holder reduces damage by 2 x each level of monk.


Gains proficiency in sleight of hand or double if already taken. At 17th level, for 4 ki points, you’ve learned that not just things around you can be utilized by your enemies weapon as well. When a melee attack is made by any enemy within five feet at you or an ally, as a reaction can make a sleight of hand to redirect the attack and then cause weapon to be hurled 10ft from its owner.
