You can start with the main WP articles
Gladiators

Gladiator types

Then you should start to look at originals, Olaf has a quite decent flickr page:

We know very few deatils about the training of Gladiators.
We also do not have any fencing manuals before the 1300 tower manuscript, but there are a few hints in the textual sources that drills were employed in the training.
What we do know is that training was done with wooden weapons and wicker shields that should weigh more then the real armaments, according to Vegetius. The training against the Palus wooden pole as high as a man can also be verified by textual and iconographic sources. Appart from that one should look into the training implements of ancient Olympic athletes as a guide how the physical fitness was achieved.

Great training on Saturday Nick, the combined attack of both Gladius and retarius worked well and the balance was good. Got some great film footage- will cut this into a short film soon. The technical aspects of structured movement was also invaluable and combining my martial combat years with the gladiatorial fighting style proves a unique defensive and offensive system.

When are you looking to organise the summer boot camp?

Hi Dave , glad you enjoyed training Saturday, not sure when to do boot camp wan't to get some more names and then i can decide how long to do boot camp over,like the fact that you are seeing the skill involved in the different fighters to do with structure and well balanced footwork and angles of weapons, i wan't to teach people good skill fighting and principles so they can eventually learn different fight patterns which can be done in a free fighting situation,thanks for you input mate, i would like to incourage people from all parts of the world to come and train at NIXS LUDIS just need to get more gladiators on board and students who wan't to be gladiators and get them over to britian and train in Colchester, Britains oldest recorded roman town,cheers mate Nick Big Grin

Controlling the bird between our rackets fufilled me with a sense of triumph and joy as if I was the first-class athelete!
