You unlock the secret fighting style by completing the Money Island story.

At first, there is a seal around the grid preventing you from obtaining the more expensive abilities. This can be removed by getting the Limit Break upgrade via CP Exchange.

When you purchase all 50 upgrades on the grid, the grid levels up and you can purchase them again for further upgrades. I believe this can go all the way up to level 99, but I'm not 100% sure what the level cap is.
