Note - this is effectively the same as it always has been with the one notable exception: that actions are not tied to your HTH training.
Throwing a punch, lashing out with a kick, or swinging a sword or using another melee weapon to attack typically uses one action to do.
Each character may have a specific HTH type (Basic, Judo, Ninjutsu, etc)
Your HTH ability will stack with the using of weapon proficiencies as well as with any PP bonus you may have.
Basic target number needed to successfully strike is a 5 or more.
Most HTH training types will be left relatively unchanged with just the removal of the attacks per melee but many may see additions put in.
Until they are rewritten in more detail, just use the various HTH Combat Training styles as published ignoring the references to attacks per melee.
No Hand-to-hand training:
Can throw a basic punch at -1 damage and a basic kick at -2 damage due to lack of training.
This is akin to self taught/street fighting. Especially if the character also takes WP Unarmed Combat (see below).
New "Ancient Weapon Poficiency"

These bonuses do not stack with other weapon proficiencies, just with HTH combat training.Note bonuses from Weapon Proficiencies stack with HTH Combat training
