"Monks are proficient with club, crossbow (light or heavy), dagger, handaxe, javelin, kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, siangham, sling, and unarmed strike."
You might as well go all the way and just say that all creatures are proficient with their natural weapons (unarmed strike is a natural weapon, it just doesn't operate like one). As written, only Aberrations, Animals, Constructs, Dragons, Elementals, Giants, Magical Beasts, Oozes, Plants, Undead, and Vermin have proficiency with their natural weapons. This is despite the fact that many other types of creatures possess natural attacks, such as Lizardfolk (Humanoid), Minotaurs (Monstrous Humanoid), most demons and devils (Outsider), and IIRC the Jaebrin from MM3 (Fey).
