Monk is just a name.

The problem is pugilist is another title that's a bit to narrow in it's implications. It's basically the same problem as monk, just moved to a different place on the venn diagram.

We need a name that is broader.

The more I think, the more "Mystic" doesn't seem so terrible. Not really a caster, but someone that does weird supernatural stuff, and even base monk has a lot of that.

I dont want baseline monk punch-class to have any mystical abilities at all in any way shape or form, those can be saved for subclasses.
