Contribution for the JiuJitsu Warriors and our GP fans.
We want to Thank them for Their great and continuous support.
We asked Our Fans to send us Some of their Pictures while training or Competing. Caught in the moment of pure focus during an actual roll or fight. This is what we got. Enjoy!
More about the Haka, what its for and why they do it, and Why we wanted to use it in this video.
It has a VERY significant meaning.
What we do is similar to what a warrior does. There is no Different. We go out there to win and put our all into it. When we go on the mats to compete we put it on the line and Fight the unknown.
What we do is not easy. It Takes BLOOD, SWEAT and TEARS.
What we live is a continuous growing passion for the sport and at war with who we were yesterday. We try to make ourselves better Today and Unstoppable for Tomorrow.
About the HAKA:
Its a traditional Maori dance / ceremony called “Haka”. This “Haka” in the video is called “Timatanga”.
It’s Used to intimidate, Frighten, and Challenge but with the utmost respect. Depends on the Circumstance the Haka is used in.
