Posted Date: September 18, 2015

GGM Carlito A. Lanada, Sr. and “The Council” (IKF Continuity Council) have made the following swift, decisive, and irrevocable decision, which takes effect immediately and without delay.

BE IT KNOWN by all especially by the kyuds and kyudais of IKF/KNP/NATO/MKA and the Kuntaw World that

–  ALICIA LANADA KOSSMAN and

–  WILLIAM “BILL” KOSSMANN

are struck-off in its entirety from the Roster of IKF and the Kuntaw Martial Arts effective immediately. Alicia is no longer a “kyudai” and Bill is no longer a “kyud”.

In addition:

  • All instructions, decisions, pronouncements, and similar acts that were orchestrated by the above individuals using the name of IKF, but treacherously acted for the benefit of the so called “Kuntaw Legacy” are declared fraudulent, and therefore not recognized. This covers the period between July 17, 2015 and September 18, 2015.
  • This post is an official notice to these individuals to cease and desist from using the Kuntaw/IKF Logo and the name International Kuntaw Federation. These are registered trademarks and owned by the GGM, and continued use of these intellectual properties infringes the legal right of the owner.

The GGM and the Sultana have repeatedly declared before that as long as the GGM is alive, he is and will always be the Supreme Authority of Kuntaw Martial Arts and there is only one Kuntaw family – the International Kuntaw Federation (IKF) with its sister organizations, the KNP/NATO/MKA and all legitimate IKF Country Chapters in the world.

To all kyuds and kyudais, please be guided accordingly.

The sincere intent of the GGM and the Sultana was not to publicly post this Decree. They tasked the IKF President to contact Alice and Bill Kossmann to discuss the matter privately to them. Unfortunately, the effort of the IKF President was not successful.

It is important to announce that the GGM and the Sultana are no longer with the Kossmann’s.

Without much ado, the Decree below shall carry the full force of the GGM’s power and authority being the founder and brain of Kuntaw Martial Arts, the IKF/KNP/NATO/MKA. The GGM’s “Housekeeping” will continue, and it will be swift. Here is the GGM’s Supreme Decree.

Take note of the date of this Decree in reference to all events that happened after the Decree date. All matters that are inconsistent with the IKF operation as operationally led by the IKF President, GM Kyud Cyrus Lagumen, are null and void, and therefore not recognized.

For kyuds and kyudais who remained with the IKF and without shame have identified their loyalty and affiliation with the GGM, the GGM and the Sultana extend their gratitude to all of you.

Please be guided accordingly.

These regional directors have the power, authority and responsibilities of an IKF Country Director who shall report directly to the IKF President.
