Monk: Stunning Blow, from level 1?

The way the text is situated on p. 68 2E, makes me doubtful if this ability is gained at level 5 or level 1. Which is correct?

The monk’s empty hand attack can stun​ an opponent on a natural 19 or 20​ attack roll at any level. I understand the confusion, though. Blame the editor!

Yes, it is something David and I should fix, and it carries over from the original boxed set. Specifically, in all other instances (I hope!) we list abilities first by availability, then alphabetically. For some odd reason, this monk ability escaped both David's and my eyes, but it's something we can fix... in 3rd Edition, when we introduce skills and feats! ;)
