Where did pirates live? 

Mares, Martin (January 2017). "The Role of Jamaica in Fostering Maritime Piracy In the Atlantic Ocean, 1655–1702". Academia. Archived from the original on 2022-01-24 . Retrieved 2019-12-16.

She points out that Zoro needs to be ready to fight to the death. Kuina wins again and again, prompting Zoro to eventually give up. Kuina points out that Zoro is going to best her soon, given she’s only small and will grow weaker over time, while the men (like Zoro) will get stronger.
