Joining a Gladiator School for a day ...

Ten years ago I read about a re-enactment group staging gladiatorial fights, and since then I was interested to do it myself one day.

The opportunity came in September 2011, when the Tourist Information Trier offered the chance to take part in the one-day event "Gladiator for a day". The German re-enactment group "Gladiatorenschule.de" gave theoretical background about history of the gladiatorial fights and the different types of gladiators and their fighting styles, but also basic physical training and "mock fights" under close supervision. The location - the Roman arena of Trier ("Augusta Treverorum") - was just perfect for this activity.

Great fun indeed !
