"The Fist Way"

Kuntao or kuntau (拳道, Pe̍h-ōe-jī: kn-thu, Tagalog: kuntaw) is a Hokkien term for the martial arts of the Chinese community of Southeast Asia, especially the Malay Archipelago. It is most commonly practiced in and associated with Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore.
Over time, kuntao and silat have influenced each other to the point where the distinction between the two can sometimes be blurred. The Malaysian art of Buah Pukul is classified as silat despite its Yunnan origin, while Javanese Kuntao Harimau retains its kuntao status despite being influenced by the folk religion and indigenous culture of Java. Some traditional styles include both words in their name, such as Kedah's 500-year-old Silat Kuntau Tekpi which is categorized as silat.
