“Oderint dum metuant” that is, “Let them hate as long as they fear” It takes many fights in the Colosseum to fight in a getup as put together as this. First, they told you that you would never make it through your first fight. Your form was too weak, how were you going to both hold your heavy iron sword and dodge blows? What they didn’t realize was that your strength lies in your mind. You have the most important ability a gladiator could have, the ability to think on your feet. Now, many fights later you’ve learned that haters are always gonna hate. You spend your days eating the best food and training for the next fight because now that you’ve gotten so far there’s no way you’re going back! If your opponents want to hate your intensity, let them, those emotions work wonders as a distraction.
