Learn How to Haka From Tuihalamaka

By now, most Arizona Wildcats fans have heard of the Haka dance, the traditional Maori war dance that's taken on a life of its own in athletics. The UA has been performing it off and on since 2009; former quarterbackNick Foles talked about it with Jon Gruden this spring.
Well, the Wildcats need Haka helpers. As we reported Saturday, Arizona's players will perform the dance in front of the Zona Zoo before every home game; first-year coach Rich Rodriguez wants the student section to learn it, and perform it with them. While it's an ambitious request —  I like this year's team's chances of making the Rose Bowl better — we're happy to pass along this how-to video from defensive tackle Sione Tuihalamaka. Watch, and enjoy.


  1. I think that's a great warm up for the players and it really increases their adrenaline. Great job for the team.
