Arriving to the “Castrum” , the Gladiators’ headquarters, just outside Rome, you will be welcome by our gladiators and centurions trainers and shown the equipment and all the tools you will be using in the next few hours.
Out “on the field” you will then be taught the training techniques of the ancient roman soldiers and the ones of the gladiators using wooden swords, daggers and shields against standing and moving targets. Then you will also learn the use of the javelin and how to become a roman archer.

A gladiators’ fight in the arena will come as the final and most exciting part of the training (no physical contact) The Retiarius throws his net against his opponent, the Oplomachus , who will defend himself trying to block the net using his dagger and shield. At the end of the fight it will follow a “winner’s celebration” with snacks and drinks and the participants will be given a certificate of “GLADIATOR EXPERIENCE”
Before leaving the “Castrum” you might want to enjoy a barbeque with local products. The menu may vary according to the season: bruschetta, steak and sausages, chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, fries, salad, water/drinks, fruit and coffee.
