Gladiators are a fascinating part of the Ancient Roman Empire and have inspired countless books and movies.

This fun-filled gladiator training workshop is your chance to learn more about (and become) these heroic and fearless warriors who fought for public entertainment.

Meet your private, experienced instructor (who also happens to be a passionate historian) and let him give you the training you would have needed to become a successful and popular gladiator some 2,000 years ago.

Listen to your private instructor as he tells you all about the gladiators: their lives, their art, and of course, their equipment and weapons they used during their combats.

You will be able to hold the swords, nets, helmets and tridents that these courageous fighters would carry into the arena. But the fun really starts when each member of your family starts the private training session. Learn the moves and the winning techniques that would have saved your life in the arena. All this is done in the safest environment (no face to face combat!)
