Rob Ruha has been doing kapa haka since he can remember. Rob was brought up on his whānau papakainga in Wharekahika with aunties, uncles and first cousins whom he now performs with in Te Whānau a Apanui.  A highlight of his haka career was joining Waihīrere Māori Club.  Although he was only there for two years, Rob learnt so much about how to be successful in haka competitions and was exposed to teachings by the best in the business that influence how he teaches haka today.
