Burning Vigor and Grappeling

Burning Vigor wrote: may make a Burning Vigor test in place of a Strength-only test if it is only for raw applications of strength (e.g. lifting something heavy, breaking down a door, etc.).
So does this mean an Adept can make a Burning Vigor test to break a Grapple? because it seems like a raw application of strength. Or is it considered a skillful use of Strength and not allowed?

Well, it says Unarmed _or_ Strength to break out. Unarmed would default to Dex. So Strength is the unskilled option. I say yes based both on RAW and Rule of Cool.
