The main concern of the Spartan warrior was how to express in the most appropriate way the "Spartan Virtue". A way of life which goes far beyond the bourgeois ideals of today and leads the man to control themself and to go far beyond his apparent limits, cultivating a Heroic way of life.
The education started from childhood and concerned both boys and girls. The goal was for girls to become "good mothers of warriors" and for boys to become "invincible warriors". At the age of 7, the state undertook the education of children as well as special educators called “Paidontrives” who first cultivated in the young Spartan a “Heroic spirit”, a virtuous soul which would result in a strong and healthy body that could cope with any difficulty.
Art, music, games and group work, war dances and survival in the wild without any help, forged a character with the main characteristics of Courage and Self-Sacrifice. Road racing, jumping, wrestling, javelin throwing and discus throwing, completed the training of the young man, so that a true warrior is born in both Spirit and Body. The result of such an education was a deep love for the homeland to such an extent that the Spartan warrior would offer his life to defend it. Courage, self-sacrifice, bravery, strength, humility, boldness, respect for the gods were the natural results of Spartan education.
Ancient Greek history is full of heroic deeds of the Spartans, culminating in the battle of Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans along with their King Leonidas gave Mankind a model Warrior with a Philosophical attitude towards Life and Death. For the Spartan Warrior, the performance of duty, respect for the enemy, the battle with honor and dignity, the war without passion, fear and violence, the dedication of victory to the Gods, bravery, daring and self-sacrifice were the means for the fulfillment and embodiment of the Spartan ideal.
A Spartan ideal which can be expressed in very few words, like those that have remained unchanged after thousands of years, has been at the time where the Persians asked the Spartans to hand over their weapons and they replied: “Molon Lave” which means "Come and take them".
