You can pretty much do a monk with MDoA, too. Except it would lack the ridiculously overpowered movement, AC, open hand damage, innate spell like abilities, and multiple attacks from AD&D onward.
It would, however, be a vast improvement over the AD&D and onward monk class.
I could see a warrior "monk" using a bo-staff or a spear for trip attacks all over the place, combined with a finishing foot stop on the throat. You'd have to be built on speed, though, since AC would be sorely lacking. But it could be done with MDoA I think and defense / parry actions to give you bonuses to AC. It'd take a bit of getting used to, probably would need to watch a lot of Kung Fu movies to get he hang of the dramatic narrative... i.e. it's not a move up, engage in melee, kill monster kind of affair, would be a lot of parrying for a couple rounds then whacking multiple enemies. Or so I envision it.
You could quest for strange powers, like Bruce Lee's one-inch-punch. Or dim mak, heh. That is, of course, what everyone thinks they want anyway. Of course, maybe DCC requires some corruption possibility to acquire such a potent power!
