Three Houses

Brawling Prowess (Japanese: 格闘術 Grappling skill) is an ability which debuted in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is learned by increasing a unit's skill level in brawling. When equipped, it increases the user's Hit, Avoid, and Dodge when brawling. As the user's skill level increases, the ability's potency does as well, with a higher level version replacing the previous one.
