Kuntaw was developed in the Philippines.Kuntaw primarily was developed as a defensive art, but it can be used as an offensive art given the right circumstances.It handles the three ranges of battle: Largo (long); Sumbrada (short); and Hubud (close) ranges as well as the three altitudes of fighting: air, standing and ground.

Fighting skills come from many different areas of the Orient. However, the three main, in which Kuntaw took from, were Kali -gave destruction of the weapon, Kempo gave destruction to the body and Pencak Silat gave destruction of the base to Kuntaw. Kali introduced the idea of the sword, Kempo gave the idea of powerful kicks and punches and from Pencak Silat came the circular, flowing, snake-like movements. The three main Filipino Arts which Kuntaw is comprised of are Buno (Philippine Wrestling), Sikaran (kicking Art) and Bugtongan (Philippine Stick Fighting system).

Weapons may be a fist, elbow, knee, foot, mind, or a hand held object such as a knife, stick or sword. Movements in Kuntaw were developed from the use of these weapons and from the defense of these weapons. Though Kuntaw is basically evasive, it is a dramatic evasiveness. The movements used are light and fast to avoid an attack, but they are designed too use this action to counter back to the opponent. These movements do not stop an attack or oppose the force delivered; instead they redirect the force back to the source by gaining control of the force. In effect, using the opponent’s own force against them without using or wasting much of your own energy or using any force. These movements direct a delivered force to an area or position that allows the practitioner to get in and take the opponent's base or balance. This gives the Kuntawista the ability to lock, throw or sweep the opponent to the ground.
