This is probably more the norm for Spartan women - female vs female. I like to think they're practicing to take on men

Default Re: Ancient Greek Mixed Wrestling

Listening to the radio last night I learned that Spartan women used to ride horses and wrestle. The reasoning behind this had more to do with militarism and eugenics ie helping to raise strong male warriors rather than feminism. Plutarch (an ancient influence on Shakespeare) documented this and there are echoes of it in the play, "Coriolanus" where the mother of the title character revels (pre-Sigmund Freud) in her son's martial skills and battle scars.
