Otherwise, go with brawl or karate to land an otherwise unarmed attack that happens to deliver a needle strike. Expect armour to render such a strike irrelevant without some serious penalties.
Or just make like Ananais from The King Beyond the Gate and have the needles built into a set of cesti - again, using brawl but making it much less obvious what you've just done.
