  1. Hey, are the classes open for women too? Is there a location in South Philly?

    1. Spartans are open to men and women. Currently we are meeting first Sunday of every month at First Unitarian Church basement - 2125 Chestnut Street.

  2. Is it just the first sunday also I was talking to a bunch of guys who told me this was primarily men. I know you don't discriminate but is there can be a meeting just for guys? Its hard to find a wrestling club that has all men on it.

  3. Fantastic info about the city that I so dearly love. best car accident lawyers

  4. Are you all still meeting the first Sunday?? How much is the training? I'm a beginner, right now I started Brazilian jui jitsu, but want to enhance my grappling. Do you guys practice more then the one Sunday a month. And where do you get the wrestling gear to wrestle? Can you wear just shorts and a dashboard your first time?


    We still meet the 1st Sunday of each month at 1:30 at First Unitarian Church of Philly, 2125 Chestnut Street.

    However, this month (Dec. 2017), we will meet on 12/17 at 1:30 at the Church, then proceed to U-Bar for a holiday party after.

  6. Are you still holding practices? If so when and where?
