Final Fantasy/Classes/Black Belt

The black belt, also referred to by some as a monk, is a vicious hand-to-hand warrior. The black belt declines to wear any armor more complicated than a cloth shirt or wooden armor, preferring to trust to his own natural swiftness to protect him in battle. Some have been known to carry nunchaku into combat though most are more comfortable with the secret martial arts techniques that they learn in their youth.

This martial training occupies the black belt's time entirely, leaving no opportunity for him to study the casting of magical spells.

Black Belts are unique in that they gain empty-handed fighting ability with experience. Therefore, they are best equipped with nunchaku early on, but fight better with no weapons by experience level 8 or 9.

Black Belts upgrade to Masters.
