About Us

It is a registered business entity with the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is the first-ever official Kuntaw School in Canada, which met both the instructional standards set by the IKF/KNP Headquarter and business and legal requirements of the Provincial Government of Ontario for business operation. With the forming of Marc’s Kuntaw Martial Arts, GM Marc was immediately appointed by GGM Carlito A. Lanada, Sr., 10th Degree, Red Belt, founder and GGM of IKF/KNP, as the official and first-ever Kuntaw Director of Canada.

It is always a part of our training.As an additional program, Kuntaw Canada offers fitness-dance program. This program is not for a competitive dance learning, but rather a fitness-for-fun learning. The program offering is currently in the development phase, which when completed, will be in the “Program and Training Schedules” section.

Have we presented ourselves well?

This is who we are; these are the products, services, and self-defense styles that we carry; these are what we offer; these are what you will get, under one roof. And, most importantly, all these products and services are offered to you at a very reasonable fee and prices. Learning self-defense that can save your life does not have to be costly; getting fit must not be boring, but rather enjoyable; investing to your health and wellness must produce tangible results worthy of your money, effort, and time.
