Maneuver Expertise (Ex; Combat Expertise)

Source Character Operations Manual pg. 71
You’re exceptionally skilled at all manner of self-defense, allowing you to easily perform and defend against combat maneuvers. Choose one combat maneuver. When resisting this combat maneuver, you gain a bonus to KAC equal to the minimum result of your expertise die. Additionally, if you attempt an attack roll to resolve the chosen combat maneuver, you can spend 1 Resolve Point as part of the action to add your expertise die to the attack roll’s result as an insight bonus. Once you have added this bonus to a combat maneuver attack roll, you can’t do so again until you have regained Stamina Points following a 10-minute rest.
You must have the combat expertise alternate class feature to select this expertise talent. You can take this expertise talent multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take it, it applies to a different combat maneuver.
