"Have you ever seen a panda that knows kung fu?"

Both, but I guess 'know' is better here. 会 can either be a future marker (will) or can/know. There isn't really a distinction between can and know for this word. The distinction is between will and know. Consider:
我明天会走 I will leave tomorrow 我会功夫 I know Kung Fu / I can do Kung Fu.
Thank you! For your last sentence 会 is more appropriate than 可以。 会 shows competence or expertise whereas 可以 shows permission. (Also 能 shows physical capacity.) Consider:
你会不会弹钢琴 Do you know how to play piano? 你可不可以弹钢琴 Do you have permission to play piano? 你能不能弹钢琴 Are you physically able to play piano?
There is a bit of overlap between 可以 and 能, but 会 is more cut-and-dry. Does that help at all?
