“Very rarely do you find a system that covers all facets of martial arts, from striking angles, to range of attack, from stand up to ground, from blunt to edge weapons, synthesised and condensed into a singular art, efficient in its adoption, intelligent in its duplicity and effective in its application.
Kombatan is an all encapsulating system that provides a conduit or base for the “linking” of systems both modern and classical providing the practitioner a one stop shop solution to surviving in a modern world full of threats to both yourself and your loved ones.
We have GGM Ernesto Presas the founder and creator of Kombatan and the countless of global instructors and thousands of students that supported the growth of Kombatan through the years for the system that we now have today. A system that I continue to proudly be associated with and one that I truly believe best represents the pinnacle of Filipino martial arts and combatives.
I look forward to training and learning from all my Kombatan brothers and sisters in the future and I hope to see as many of you as possible in the Philippines at the Kombatan Combatives International World Camp in April/May, 2017.”

The greatest honor for a martial arts master is that masters from other arts want to learn from you.
Great Grandmaster Presas was known for this and he was highly respected in all martial arts styles.
We all miss the great Grandmaster. Thank you for all the inspiration, teachings and kindness you have given us.
Let us cherish the memory of the Great Grandmaster by continuing the work he has begun and by developing our knowledge in his styles to a higher degree. The legend will live through us all now and forever. It is time to start to work again as a big family. I hope all KOMBATAN schools, teachers and students link to our website. This site is the first step to begin to work together as one.
Best regards, Master Tomi,Finland

GGM Ernesto A Presas was a true pioneer of FMA. In the early days when it was often taboo to be able train in different styles of martial arts, GGM was amongst the first to revolutionize the fusion of various styles. He also modernized many classical Filipino systems. Kombatan is such a diverse fighting art due to his efforts. GGM often quoted “we are the ones that connect all styles, no matter what style you train.” By propagating Kombatan around the world for so many years, GGM has left a huge worldwide legacy that will never die. WKF is proud & honoured to continue his journey.
