The Haka
During this session, participants will learn the history and culture for the Haka. The Haka is an ancient Maori war dance performed by a group of people with vigorous movements to intimidate the opponent. There are various forms of the Haka, but the more popular Haka is performed by New Zealand's National Rugby team prior to every match. It is used to hype up the players and the crowd, and to intimidate the opposing team. It is not a typical dance that students learn in a PE unit, but it is very easy to learn and can be used to increase student morale.
