Default Re: Martial Arts Style Talent

I think the Talents book mentioned the idea of Martial Arts Style Talents, so it's not that implausible.

As for styles not always having enough realistic required skills, you could expand it with some related or optional skills. For example, Aikido (GURPS Martial Arts p149 text box) only has two required skills, and Aikijutsu (same page) has one, but both have six optional skills, and it would be pretty easy to justify adding a few of them to a Style Talent, or adding something related but not on the list (Aikido masters with Diplomacy and Meditation are almost a stereotype, for example).
Warning, I have the Distractible and Imaginative quirks in real life.
