Basic Style is AC -4 and d4 damage, but single attack.  Other than the Steel Cloth, no weapons are used. Basic Style is -20 sit-mod and -20 damage mod on Defense, but -10 damage mod on attacks, and single attack.  Other than the Improvised Cloth Weapon B7@6, no weapons are used.
Untitled can have up to three maneuvers.  Choke Hold (1) disables for up to three minutes, but must be held through a full round.  Locking Block (2) can disarm an opponent.  One more maneuver may be known.  Incapacitator (3) does 3d6 and disables a limb or other appendage for 24 hours.  Steel Cloth (3) does d10/d12 with any large cloth. The Untitled usually begins with Missile Escape, adding the additional defense Attack Catch and the very efficient Immobilizer.
Master knows all of these. The Master has usually garnered ability in Improvised Cloth Weapon, the only technique like a weapon useable in the style.  He may also learn the disabling Choking Grasp or Limb Twister.
Honored Master adds one level 4 maneuver.  Immobilizing (4) prevents an opponent from making any action other than a limited escape attempt.  Missile Deflection (4) does not affect duels, nor does the Monk Variant Meditation (4). The Honored Master will generally add the other disabling maneuver.
Most Honored Master knows all of these. The Most Honored Master will have learned the Alert Rest technique, which adds little to combat abilities.
Most Highly Honored Master adds Speed (6), doubling attacks and combat movement for five minutes. The Most Highly Honored Master can effectively use Haste to increase his combat speed in all aspects.
Overall the style is strong on disabling and capable of disarming.  Although base damage and attacks are weak, defense is good, and special maneuvers can overcome the weaknesses.  There is no Blind Fighting or All-around Sight.  It is limited in limited field (ring competition) combat.

M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
