Scottish Haka
I have no idea what a haka is, but I KNEW I loved men in kilts for a reason!

There is a photograph going around where Scottish Regimental Officers wearing kilts are sitting down with HRH posing for a photograph. The officer next to HRH had his kilt pulled tight showing off his wedding tackle, no kidding.

I bet HRH didn't get a copy

The Haka is a traditional war dance done by the Maori and taken up by New Zealand sporting teams (mostly rugby). They do it before all their international games. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBlu8StfXtM"]All Blacks Haka vs Fiji Cibi - July 2011 - YouTube[/ame]

It's very cool. Thanks, Spartan! I figured that somebody here could educate me on the subject.

Ha Ha HA Ha... love the 2 videos...

Always put a chill in my spine when I hear the HAKA, and I am not even a New Zealander! I suppose traditions are something that is beautiful.

I think I saw that photo, BA! As I recall, the kilt-wearer in question looked very pleased with himself.

Umm theoretically it isn't a war dance as it is done without weapons, think of it more as a statement of "come get some" than a "we are going to get you" I think the Fijian Cibi is a war dance as it simulates weapon use where as the Haka is a challenge.

You gotta hand it to the Scots, talking about them always remindss me of Braveheart...

I had to nurse a Scotsman admitted to my CCU once, a hell of nice, jovial man, even without the alcohol, mind you. We got along pretty swell...

I did pop the million dollar question- Is it true that a true Scotsman will not have any underwear under the kilt?

You know what was his answer.....
