Ah, well thank you still for the suggestion. That said-
1.) The Brawler is an awesome class in design and I know a lot of people love it/are going to love it. However it really doesn't click with me on a personal level- remove the mysticism from martial arts and my appeal for it really takes a nose dive.
2.) Fishman Karate is a racial martial art of the fishmen in the One Piece series. Although it's a little broader than I'm implying its big stick is that those who utilize it can use water as a medium (in the water works best, although it also includes the water in creatures and even the moister in the air for masters of the art) for attacks; those trained enough in it can even learn to manipulate water as a weapon though careful hand motions to create powerful currents and whirlpools, as Jinbei here can show you.
Obviously I'm not asking for anything to out there but a PoW style for water-based combat would rock. I already have an archetype kinda based off of monks for this, letting them use ki for a special style based of Jimbei- it's a big hit.
