First Strike is an ability learned by the Monk class for 1200 JP in the original version and 1300 JP in every version afterwards. While equipped, the user will always attack first before an enemy attacks them if it is a physical attack and they are in range of hitting the enemy.
Strike Back returns as a support ability learned by the Parivir, Gladiator, and Ravager for 250 AP from the Bone Plate. The ability allows the user to block an attack(not skill attack) and counter it with their own physical attack.
