Agoge 007 - CHINA

In the 7th century BC, the Spartans wanted to produce the strongest and most mentally tough citizens on earth. To do this, they created the Agoge, a system of training that became the envy of the known world. To complete the Spartan Agoge, one overcomes mental and physical obstacles that aim to develop the body, mind and spirit. Most people will need to undertake months of training and self-discovery to earn this coveted achievement. It is advised that entrants have completed various endurance events and intellectual challenges. For example: a participant may have developed perseverance, camaraderie, and leadership training through the military, or by completing various Spartan Races and Spartan Hurricane Heat distances. The Spartan Agoge is the culmination of every physical and mental strength as well as everything a person has learned in life. Finishers become innovative thinkers, prudent risk-takers, and expert decision-makers. They will embody the Spartan Code, a code of honor and respect that breeds trust and inspires action. Most importantly, they become masters of themselves. Click here to read more about Agoge 003 China
