Lots of fun for the kids its not really for adults, and the instructor was great with them. The accompanying small museum they have helps put it all in context
Wonderful experience! Highly recommended for all ages and sexes.
Fun experience if you are looking for something different to do in Rome other than the main tourist attractions!
My son had the best time, he is 15 now and still remember :
We had a great time. My two pre-teen boys and I took the class and had a lot of fun. This was the perfect thing for the kids in between site seeing and museums. The first part of the school was very informative and then the interactive part was fun and informative as well. It is a little pricey but worth in in the end.
A history lesson and a great work out all in one! We learned about the history of gladiators in ancient Rome, got to see and handle the weapons and armor, and then spent an hour training like real gladiators including sparring with wooden gladius swords. Overall a lot of fun!
One FYI - if you are in central Rome you'll need to take a taxi to the school, and the school will call a taxi to take you back to Rome.

Great fun, interesting experience. Maybe don't got on a hot day though.
My husband and I did this activity while on our honeymoon in Rome! It was so much fun and we learned so much history about the gladiators that I had no idea previously. There was some physical exercise involved which turned out to be a pleasant surprise and learning how to fight like a gladiator was really fun. I would recommend everybody do this activity.
I must recommend this school to anyone young and old who wants to learn about gladiator history and fighting choreography. Yuri is the very soul of this operation and he is TOP NOTCH. Yuri's passion and knowledge really made this experience special. I gifted this to my 40 year old husband and he really enjoyed it! Please realize two things... this school is off the beaten path but it's literally ON THE APPIAN WAY... so it's a beautiful and historic area about 15 minutes cab ride from the historic area we were in Piazza Navona. Also, this is a legitimate workout... Yuri insisted in a fun way that my husband give it his all... so dress appropriately for the weather... May was very warm! What really sets this school apart is the hands-on museum where you can try on different helmets and actually pick up the weapons. You really realize how hard it was to fight in some of these garments! I want to give a special thanks again to Yuri - keep up the passion and dedication and keep inspiring others to learn more about this amazing part of Roman history.
Excellent experience with my husband and two teenage daughters. Interactive, physical, informative and fun! Would do again!
