to post my theoretical monk build!!!

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#ecRYjT!Yag!cZbZYb

It's all pretty straight-forward. Survivability is kind of a mess of reducing enemy damage, self healing, damage boosters that leave nothing alive to hit me, and other things I forget. I figure I also can't be hit while using SSS, and tempest rush is a pretty cool gtfo ability that i can spam for free. I can even use it as a gap closer without wasting spirit. So, I don't have any passive spirit regen because I have the one spirit ability with the big CD, and the kick (cause why monk if you only punch?) which can be a little more spammable with an awesome knockback (one of my fav mechanics). I saw that the mantra healing was reduced from every hit to "up to 30%," but I would still like to try it.
I'm not crazy about monk passives in general, but I will definitely get lots of use out of the 3 I chose. Let me know what you think. I know it may not be inferno-worthy because everyone seems to describe those builds as "spam defensive crap and do a little kiting damage when you can." I just want it to be well-rounded and fun with some of the coolest looking abilities.

You have Obsidian Crippling Wave. I think you're good for high-damage situations.

I originally thought that too but then I saw a newer SSS internal video where the animation was MUCH FASTER and the original monk stayed in his position and could potentially continue doing other things.
OH I found the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKOmX4oDAUE

At least there are no glaring errors or very gross deficiencies. Thank you everyone so far. Input is still always welcomed.

Video is of older version, and emulated (not bnet); so probably buggy?
