Re: Holistic Warrior [3.5 Martial Adept][PEACH]
Look in the book and my post before. If a class doesn't have an in-battle recovery mechanic they have to prepare between each encounter through a series of exercises. You actually didn't make an in-battle recovery mechanic as maneuvers always stay until expended.

You didn't mention any form of regaining in battle a maneuver so all you did was give a waiting period to the much needed Adaptive Style feat tax.
Like I said I know you didn't mean that but as I have and Amercha said there isn't any incentive to stay in this class after level 1 even if you edit it the way you want. As of now this class has little to no style and theme.
