For example, Spartan boys began their military training at the impressionable age of seven years old. These boys entered the ‘agoge’ system which not only instilled vigorous military training methods, but it also taught them strong hunting, and social skills that would help them during war periods. This proves to be significant because if the Spartans did not start training their warriors from a young age, they, like the Athenians, would eventually perish due to the lack of strength, fearlessness, and courage (Connoly). The extensive training of the Spartan men made what Sparta is known for today – a legendary war-machine. In addition to this, the city state of Athens also did not always have efficient war plans, or tactics.

The brain level of a twelve-year old boy may be the ultimate reason Tiffany Eunick is dead at the moment. Tate had a history of bullying kids his own age at school, and being aggressive with them, most likely because of the size he was as a twelve-year old (McKinney). Tate’s mother knowing about his aggressive behavior and usual styles of play, leads one to wonder why he was left alone with the six-year old for that extended period of time. Yes, Tate was an aggressive child, idolized studio wrestlers, and his choice of play was to re-enact moves from his favorite studio wrestler, but that appears to be consistent with most twelve-year old boys. If the counsel assigned to the trial of Lionel Tate made more of an effort to consult professionals in field of child psychology, and understand the brain of a twelve-year old boy, one may believe the result of the verdict would have been different.
the trainer of a Retiarius would be called Doctores Retiarii. When a man was accepted into a school and finished his initial training he would referred to as Tirones Gladiatores or as the crowd called them Tiro. However if they survived their first fight they would be re-named: Veteranus. Gladiatorial Training Gladiatorial training starts with a novicius (new gladiator) getting to his peak fitness. However, he does not train with real weapons as that could be a potential safety hazard for trainers and staff.
They married the strongest boys with the strongest girls and the fastest boys with the fastest girls in order to bread the best warriors. Infamously, the Spartan elders would inspect all new born infants and any found to be imperfect, judged to be puny or deformed, were thrown from Mount Taygetos which is known as “The Deposits”. The soon to be Spartan warriors were taken from their home, around the age of six or seven, depending on the source, to attend the Agoge until the age of 18. They were subject to harsh training and discipline. Historical accounts tell of Spartan boys being allowed no shoes, very few garments, and being taught to take pride in enduring pain and hardship.
Both sports and education parallel themselves in the process of increasing rights for women. Sports teach young women to set goals and try their hardest to achieve them (WHE 1). President Obama explains that the Title IX amendment can be a “springboard for success” for all women in the United States. Every parent wants to see their children doing well and living up to their fullest potential. By playing sports, young girls gain self-confidence and acquire a much better outlook on life.
Personal Background Leonidas was born in Greece Peloponnesian Peninsula in 530 B.C. (Leonidas I, par.1) Leonidas was the second son of Spartan King’s Anaxandridas first wife. Leonidas’ mother was his father’s niece. When he was a child, he received very strenuous physical conditioning for many years of military training, trying to reach to the top of the martial perfection to hone his warrior’s skills. One in a few Spartan kings received this harsh training.
The Spartans took up a strong need in a military force, and war became a typical lifestyle for them. Men began to train as young as seven years old as they were required to join the army. Only strong belligerent men could serve in their army. Military force became the Spartans lifestyle, as creative inventions and art were unimportant. Named after Goddess of Athena, Athens were quite dynamic people who studied philosophy, science, and art.
To manage all these people they let some free with no political rights while the rest became Serfs. To oppress these people the Spartans formally went to war by declaration. The government was set-up for all males to become warriors when they grew. Baby boys were inspected at birth, if deemed unfit they were thrown into a ravine and forever gone. When they were twelve they were sent to a military camp of sorts where they were trained to become warriors.
She was a widow who lived to train and educate her children and was thought very highly of as a wise noble matron.
