During the Gladiator Class, a teacher will teach you the basic techniques of the fight using the “gladio”, the typical sword of the gladiators. The gladiators of Ancient Rome lived a life of discipline and training. They were experienced in fighting against other people and wild animals, and they used a variety of weapons: spears, tridents, nets, shields, and of course the “gladio”. Women could be gladiators too, they were just a lot rarer than their male counterparts.
