    Yes.
    It actually specifies this in the Monk description, under "Proficiencies," I believe.

    Now, this is one of those things I would have as a DM discretion. For the most part I'd say "if you have a shield equipped, you lose the wisdom bonus."

    However, if it were an improvised shield, like say holding up a chair, or a garbage can lid, I'd give them the wisdom bonus, but then if the roll were such that the wisdom bonus is what saved them from getting hit, i'd have the chair be broken or thrown away.

    I suppose that's just silly and pointless, but I like having fun and frivilous things when playing. Plus, it gives the possibility of accidentally hitting bystanders ;p

    I always figured that part of the Wisdom bonus might actually be your ability to percieve the events going on, then use your perception to your advantage in the form of grabbing a chair and having your enemy break that instead of you.

    LIke in those Jacky Chan movies.
