I'd call it a surprise attack, because I think letting it set up ambushes is too nasty.
Could you use Soul-Void Kata in response to the reflexive Read Intentions rolls made in response to Black Claw's Open Palm Caress?
Absolutely, but you'd have to pay its cost separately for each character reading your intentions.
