This interview might have new information about how John Carter’s fighting style became what it is in the movie. At least, I don’t remember hearing before that the filmmakers originally wanted John Carter to be an elegant fencer. TK says here that that approach just didn’t work for him, so he suggested that JC instead be a “raw” fighter.

Taylor Kitsch answered one of my questions that was posted on Twitter. I had asked if John Carter’s fighting style ever had been planned as fencing or if it always was a vicious hacking. He was amused that the word hacking and describe fighting style as raw and reflecting of John’s mental state. I think in the circumstances I’d be more of a hacker myself.

That was a cool moment when he answered your question in that interview.
I think this video is the first I’ve heard that the production originally wanted John Carter to be an elegant fencer, and tried to train Taylor Kitsch that way, but it didn’t work out for him, so he then talked the production into letting him adopt the “raw” style. It sounds like Stanton and co. wanted JC to be the master swordsman he is in the novels, but had to go with the raw style as a plan B.
