Authentic Haka Experience


Teams that are looking for an impacftul and empowering experience.

The Haka is an ancient dance of the New Zealand Maori and was traditionally used to prepare for war. It would be performed before the battle with the enemy. The nature of the Haka was important in creating a bond amongst the group, to mentally prepare them for the reality of war.

Modern day, the Haka is performed by the New Zealand’s rugby team All Blacks before a rugby match. Doing the Haka helps the All Blacks team to become one unit, and to draw strength and power from each other to take on any challenge that arises.

The Introduction Experience workshop is managed by New Zealanders, coming from a mix of Maori and Polynesia decent. As kids growing up in New Zealand, they learned the Haka before they could walk. The Haka taught them the importance of self-confidence, teamwork, and respect at a young age and this workshop is a great start to experience the Haka for the first time. We will give you an impressive guide to the Haka, and teach you the positive and fun influence it can have on your overall team spirit.
