Magnet Releasing Fighting Styles Featuring Mau Rakau As Seen In The Dead Lands

The kind people over at Magnet Releasing have put together a video showcasing the different fighting styles featured in some of their films. One of the styles is Mau Rakau.

New Zealand Maori have ancient and fierce warrior traditions, based on a form of martial arts called Mau Rakau. The Dead Lands draws on and modernizes these traditions to create a gripping story involving spiritual insult, physical desecration, knife-edge alliances and a desperate overland chase for revenge. It features high-octane, hard physical hand-to-hand combat showcasing extreme athleticism, lethally precise hand-crafted weapons and choreography of startling beauty and ferocity. The facial expressions and fight moves of the warriors are reminiscent of New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks, connecting the film to today’s warriors.

Have a look!
