Tikanga

Tikanga is concerned with the customary values and practises that have developed over time. Whānau live according to their values and beliefs, and supporting rules and customs put in place to ensure that everything is done in the correct manner.

Tikanga determines what we physically do in the water, but more importantly, doing it the correct way.
