Summary: Reduce soak provided by target's armor by Martial Arts.
The exalt strikes out with a forceful open-handed punch, using his essence to allow the force of the blow to bypass the armor of his opponent as if it just wasn't there. He may reduce his opponent's armor-based soak for one unarmed Martial Arts attack by twice his Martial Arts rating, to a minimum of zero.
This charm is roughly equivalent to Consuming Entropy Strike (abys.164). In comparison, it becomes cheaper as your MA increases, but is both bounded and doesn't offer as much control.
