As a former tae kwon do instructor, I had to check this place out! It's definitely more geared toward kids and beginner martial artists but I enjoyed myself immensely! The instructor knows his history and also his fighting skills, having little weapons experience, it was a nice refresher for me from an intro Kali class I took many years ago.... More

Toured Rome and Venice with my kids and grandkids. GLADIATOR SCHOOL was the highlight! This high compliment comes from us adults watching, and each of the kids, aged 5-14 We went to class after a morning at the Colosseum. Perfect! Our instructor was top notch, got the kids involved in the history, practice and pride of the gladiators. After the... More

What an expirience, the team is so passionate of what they are doing and it pulls you in. You feel like back in time when rules were different. I can strongly recommend it for kids but also adults will like it. An experience I definitely don't want to miss.

The three of us, including 8 year old daughter, went here for the 5-7 session. It was fantastic fun. We spent the first hour in the museum learning about Roman warriors and gladiators and learnt so much. Our instructor was very focused on our daughter which was brilliant. She tried on real gladiator helmets and held swords! He pitched it... More

Beloved, our instructor, was wonderful! I realllly enjoyed being a spectator. My two boys, ages 7 and 11 loved it as did my husband. The boys really wanted to go again the next day. She was so much fun and so enthusiastic. We learned a lot about the life and times of a Gladiator. They got to try on replica... More

The four of us (two adults and two children, both girls ages 12 and 9) attended the 3 pm Gladiator School in Rome. The school is outside the central Rome district and while we were able to get an Uber to the school, no Ubers were available on the return trip, but the School was happy to call you a... More

A wonderful experience. Our instructor Piero was wonderful - knowledgeable, funny and entertaining - and both children and parents had a great time. Great memories and photos to bring home. Our kids need activity-based learning, and they took more away from these 2 hours than from the Roman ruins we saw earlier in the day! I wholeheartedly recommend. We went... More

Our boys had an absolutely fantastic time today at gladiator school, made all the more special by the enthusiasm and passion for Roman history of their gladiatorial tutor, "Marcus Vallerius". I would recommend this experience to any family visiting Rome. Grazie mille per una giornata indimenticabile!

This was a really fun experience. It begins with a very cool history session about Roman soldiers and gladiators -- complete with a cool display of weapons, armor, and other artifacts. Then you start your training! Our trainer was so friendly and so fun and our kids loved learning their gladiator moves. At the end, we all got to 'battle'... More

This is really the place worthwhile visiting with kids! It offers great history explanation about the age of gladiators as well as great practice. It last approx 3 hours, but it's full of fun and activities. You don't stop! Just make sure you wear something you don't mind getting a bit dirty. It's fun for kids as it is for... More
