Is air martial arts or space martial arts a thing in fiction?
I mean, there's no way the answer is no.

Dragon Ball Z does not count.

Space martial arts is more a book thing, usually dropped when describing a badass but rarely given any solid detail. Air Martial arts is a bit more tricky as people who can perform air anything tend to be capable of flight. When that happens you basically are fighting like normal except you 'stand' on the air instead of the ground.

Well...Iron Fist fought in a dimension without gravity or real ground so....would that count? I don't know if that's space or air but it's a thing. It's the best comic example I can think of off the top of my head

I mean either way it would completely change the way we think about throwing a punch and fighting because you couldn't shift your weight at all from one foot to the other at all. It's like hockey fighting you could only do arm punches. In fact Dempsey wrote a whole section of his book on how gravity is the key to good power punching
