Gladiators en route to the meeting.
|Founding||Sometime prior to July 12, 1979|
 Formation and background
Little is known about the Gladiators' formation, except that they were founded sometime before the meeting on July 12, 1979. Their territory was Canarsie, Brooklyn, and they could be identified by the black or navy vests that they wore. They were on the Gramercy Riffs' network.
 The meeting
The Gladiators were one of the gangs invited by Cyrus and the Riffs to the conclave held in Van Cortlandt Park. The gang sent nine delegates from their territory in Canarsie to the conclave in the Bronx; it is unknown what became of the gang's delegates when Cyrus was shot and the meeting was interrupted by the cops.
