Change it to something like this
Range 20 yards
Damage Same as FoF
You could have the animation just show a punch that launches a ball of "chi" at the target, you already have the animation in game on a boss mob in Shado Pan Monastery, for 2h weapons you could have them slam the ground, for DW you could have them slam the weapons together to create a chi wave or something.
Basically remove the root, and allow it to go out 10-20 yards to help with pvp issues.
