Well, have at it. Criticism is welcomed.

I am going to have a PC using it in an upcoming Forgotten Realms campaign and thought I'd see what you guys thought about it.

It's my first time creating a class like this, so I hope it turned out well.

Creating a Monk
Monks depend on Strength, Wisdom, and Dexterity for most of their powers. Constitution is also useful, since it helps them stand up to damage. The two monk builds presented here are the Ki Warrior and Martial Arts Expert.

Ki Warrior
Your use of the martial arts embodies the term "a strong will." Using your insight, you find ways to take down monstrous opponents though the use of will over strength. Ki based abilities are your focus.

Most of your attack powers use Wisdom, so it should be your highest ability score. Dexterity should be your second best ability score, as it will help with armor and reflex, while also applying to certain abilities. The third-highest score should be your Constitution, because you will constantly be in the melee fray of combat. Choose powers that reflect your preference for a wise style of fighting.
Suggested Feat: Focused Offense (Human feat: Human Perseverance)
Suggested Skills: Heal, Religion, Perception, Insight, Acrobatics.
Suggested At-Will Powers: Flurry of Blows, Groin Shot
Suggested Encounter Power: Sickening Strike
Suggested Daily Power: Stunning Blow

Martial Arts Expert
You like to rush into the battle, knocking people around and about with your shear strength, and often times grappling them to the ground to make sure they don't escape. Naturally, Strength should be your highest ability score. For your second ability, Dexterity is a good choice because it improves your AC and reflex, while also applying to many of your abilities. The third-highest score should be your Constitution, because you will constantly be in the melee fray of combat and need the additional health. Choose powers that reflect your preference for fighting with expertise of a martial arts master.
Suggested Feat: Focused Offense (Human feat: Surprising Blow)
Suggested Skills: Intimidate, Stealth, Endurance, Athletics, Acrobatics.
Suggested At-Will Powers: Flurry of Blows, Monk's Grip
Suggested Encounter Power: Twist of the Arm
Suggested Daily Power: Monkey's Strike
Monk Class Features
Your class features depend largely on the build and
fighting style you choose.

Devotion Path

Years of devotion to your respective path, filled with hours of intense meditation and training, has lead you to find ways to increase your lethality in combat.

Ki Channeling: Attacks made against your focused target are imbued with your channeled ki, dealing additional damage equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Martial Expertise: Your expertise in the martial field has taught you how to deal with opponents that do not fight you with their full attention. You deal an additional 1d6 damage that scales with the die increase of your Monastic Battle Focus ability whenever your focused target grants you Combat Advantage.

The choice you make also provides bonuses to certain monk powers. Individual powers detail the effects (if any) your Devotion Path selection has on them.

Mystic Body:
Due to years of training being unhindered by heavy armors, all the while hardening the body's skin and muscle and gaining a heightened sense of battle, you gain a bonus to your armor class equal to either your Wisdom or Strength modifier while wearing no armor.

Also, because of your focus on unarmed melee attacks you may treat your fists as weapons that deal 1d6 damage with +4 class bonus to attack, and may act as if attacking with two weapons. Every part of the monk's body can be used as a weapon, so bound hands would not stop from an equally damaging kick or headbutt to the enemies face! A quarterstaff may also be used for many monk techniques, retaining the ability to act as if attacking with two weapons.
In addition, you gain the Quick draw feat.

Monastic Battle Focus
Once per turn as a minor action, you can designate the enemy nearest to you as your focused target.

Once per round, you may deal extra damage to your target while wielding a quarterstaff, sling, or with an unarmed strike. The extra damage is based on your level. If you can make multiple attacks in a round, you decide which attack to apply the extra damage to after all the attacks are rolled.

The Monastic Battle Focus effect remains active until the end of the encounter, until the target is defeated, or until you designate a different target as your focus. You can designate only one enemy as your focused target at a time.

Code:
Level      Monastic Battle Focus Extra Damage
1st-10th      +1d6
11th-20th      +2d6
21st-30th      +3d6


Monk Powers
Your powers are bold exploits derived from your relentless training and endless meditation. At higher levels, you have access to special stance powers (see “Keyword Categories,” page 55).
