Is this an actual fighting style? Edit

It has never been referenced aside from attack names and Jinbe said that Fishman Karate is manipulation of water so isn't this the same thing

You know, I've been wondering the same thing. When I read Shonen Jump in America, I thought that Fishman Jujutsu was just the translation they had decided to use instead of Fishman Karate. Could someone clear up why we are just now creating this page? Did we just now make this distinction? Thanks. By the way, remember to sign your posts. PX15.. 03:51, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Its just what the English companies use. Let's get rid of it. This is all part of Fishman Karate. SeaTerror (talk) 04:19, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

I believe in the anime, Jinbe is heard distictly saying "Jujitsu" instead of karate. That would mean it's not just a translation thing and it is something different from FK. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 05:21, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

They're different:

Jujutsu on the left, Karate on the right. I think the difference is that karate is actual martial arts (punching and kicking), whereas jujutsu is more energy-based. Zodiaque             06:06, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

But couldn't fishman jujitsu be a subset of fishman karate or just part of those attack names. Jinbe has said that he uses fishman karate but those attack names are the only source we have for jujitsu.Videogamep (talk) 23:16, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Jujutsu and karate are different martial arts styles, so I doubt it's a subset.DancePowderer Talk 03:03, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

The fighting styles both manipulate water though, and usually when a fighting style is used the user introduces it beforehand or a databook names it.Videogamep (talk) 20:13, August 30, 2012 (UTC)
