About this Event

Mau Rākau is a traditional Māori martial art. This workshop gives you an insight into the ancestral practices, values and protocols of our Māori Warriors. You'll learn about Māori culture and traditions, gain new skills and have fun as well.

The Ancient Art of Māori Weaponry can be traced back to the time when Ranginui and Papatūānuku were separated and their children were at war with each other from which all ancient fighting can be traced.

Te Whare Tū Taua o Aoteaora was founded by Dr Pita Sharples in 1983 due to the renaissance of the Maori language, tikanga and to offer the ancient art of mau rākau back to Māoridom as an innovative program in physical fitness, Māori history, Māori Atua, whakapapa, confidence, leadership skills, self discipline, respect and all uses of the Taiaha.

This is a high intensity workshop so please wear the appropriate clothing & footwear and a waterbottle to keep you going. Limited spaces, register now to secure your spot!
