A character can, with GM permission, have a martial arts style with both hand-to-hand and ranged maneuvers. For example, a skilled knife fighter might want to add a ranged maneuver to his Knifefighting style to reflect his skill with thrown knives. Some of the styles described in the "Martial Arts Styles" section of this book, such as An Ch'i, have both hand-to-hand and ranged maneuvers.
Provided that the GM does not feel that this would be unbalancing to the campaign, this is perfectly acceptable. However, just like Extra DC (see below), 3-point Combat Skill Levels with a hand-to-hand style do not add to any ranged maneuvers in that style, and vice-versa. Five-point levels with a particular style (not with Hand-To-Hand Fighting, with a specific style, such as Karate) will add to both hand-to-hand and ranged maneuvers in that style.
