    The American Branch of KunTao Silat has adopted the teachings of Bill Chang (GrandMaster U. Un Surya) and the Internal KunTao as taught by Bill Chang to Steve Gartin – Ba Pak – Lineage Founder of Malabar and American KunTao Silat.  This is now the core of the Internal KunTao at Level Four.  This information has only recently been transmitted, so All folks certified in KunTao Silat, Malabar KunTao Silat or American KunTao Silat who have reached Level Four will be certified as a Level Four Practitioner of American KunTao Silat as well since all KunTao Silat martial systems share the first Three Levels.
