The museum lesson was really informative and fun, very interactive. Training was great, my kids loved every second of it. Definitely the highlight of our 3 days in Rome

so much fun - especially if you take the Kid at Heart attitude! Plus there is a little bit of a history lesson some physical training and the chance to legitimately take a swing at your partner!

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

The tools of the trade

We went directly to the store and bought him a training sword and he slashed his way through Rome. He spent the rest of the time in Italy trying to talk me into buying him a Gladiator helmet. Rome was just not ready for Gladiator Chase.
