Two hours well spent. It's great fun. As a family of four we all loved learning how to fight like Gladiator's. The instructor was enthusiastic, engaging and fun. We also enjoyed learning the basic history just as much as the sparring. For our boys aged 9 and 6 it was the highlight our trip. Take their advice and arrive by taxi, it is the best option.

What a kick in the pants! Our whole family did it- ages 9 to 43. We all loved it and our gladiator was absolutely hilarious! Very interesting and knowledgeable!!! After learning about the gladiators we went out and began to train. Running , dodging sandbags, and sword movements. Sparred to finish

The two teachers were great and related well to our group of 15 students. They kept them engaged the entire two hours and our students were so pleased that they will be sharing what they learned with our other high school students during our History Day.

This was a highlight for the entire family! We all, parents and kids (ages 4,9,11), learned so much about Roman life, soldiers and Gladiators. Our instructor was informative and professional. She was able to include all age groups in the fun and education. Don't miss it!

We are so satisfied with the experience we had at the Gladiator School.
It was not a showy touristy place. This was serious training!
After a fascinating walk through the history of Ancient Roman military and gladiators, we ran drills. Then we learned the five basic attack moves and blocks of the gladiators, and put them to use in the ring.
We found that the trainers can also change the format to fit a group of children. However, if you ask our opinion, leave the kids at home, because the school is very legit. You will learn a lot and get a great workout. If I lived in Rome, I would sign up for a long-term program.

Fantastic. Everything we hoped for. Our eight-year old son had the time of his life, begged to go back as soon as possible.

This was fantastic. My 8 and 10 year boys did it together and both loved it. It was a very effective way to bring Roman history to life and something we would highly recommend. Definitely worth catching a cab there too.

Ok, let's face it, you need to be a bit geeky for this one. However I had a blast on this tour. Wolfgar, the instructor absolutely knew his subject inside and out was absolutely great to learn from. I would do this tour again.
