About

After her successful class ‘A Taste of Kapa Haka’ in 2016, Rawinia returns with a class which will focus on particular kapa haka disciplines. Learn mau rakau moves, how to make and use poi and some of the other traditional games played by Māori children.

Discover how these games nurtured hand-eye coordination, flexability, agility and memory.
