About us

The American Agoge's mission is to provide self-defense, survival and disaster preparedness education for the everyday man, woman, child and family. We take our inspiration from the Spartans and their Agoge.  "Agoge" is the name of the training regimen, or school mandated for all Spartan males beginning at the age of 7 and lasting until middle age. Agoge training in the mind of the Spartan is how they created "Spartiates," or citizens.  The Agoge emphasized military training, self-defense, survival, hunting, stealth, dancing, singing, social communication and interaction as well as history, civics and loyalty to Sparta and its principles. The goal would be the creation of a Spartan male with superior mental and physical preparation that would be a better citizen and warrior. Our goal at the American Agoge is to create a better man, and woman...A better American.
