A Martial Arts Style may not have less than three maneuvers. It is recommended that martial arts have at least five maneuvers, but a style can have as few as three. In the previous section, the only Martial Arts Style given with fewer than five maneuvers was Ancient Boxing.
The style may theoretically have as many maneuvers as the designers want, but you'll soon reach a point of diminishing returns, where each new maneuver overlaps others to such a degree that it's fairly worthless.
Of course, to purchase martial arts, a character must spend at least 10 points on maneuvers, which means a minimum of two 5-point maneuvers. It is recommended that most styles have many more than this.
