This was a disappointment — and an expensive one. It was like a kids’ birthday party with too many kids and not enough adults. They admit too many people per session and run out of time. Result: not all the kids get to do all...More

It’s good for families with kids. Our instructor, Mierko, was very impatient with kids and has a good sense of humor. The program starts with a visit to their mini museum for some knowledge on gladiators and their battle gears. We are then asked to...More

Our children learned a lot here as they dressed up in gladiatorial gear, practised with wooden swords and eventually fought in pairs with padded weapons. Flamma, the gladiatrix, was the lively and highly efficient instructor, even managing to plait the girls' hair, Roman style, whilst...More
