About this pro

I am an Army veteran who served 14 years in the military. I first learned to box as a West Point cadet and was recruited to be on the boxing team as a freshman. Eventually, I became a 4x All American boxer, 4x West Point boxing champion (in my weight class), and also a 2x captain of the Army Boxing team. I enjoy teaching and training beginners who are eager to learn to box, to instill courage, pride, and self-confidence in the individual. I like to teach people in a very technical manner, so that they can learn to box safely and thoroughly.

Learning to box is one thing, but taking these skills to actually fight (spar) is another. Once people get a few sparring sessions in and eventually an actual boxing match, the transformation of the individual is incredible. I can see that people become more confident, and I enjoy taking them through this journey of being a more self-assured individual. I believe that fighting makes you into a better person, as you become tough, more resilient, but also very humble. This transformation is what allows you to "Speak softly and carry a big stick."

  • Jill Deferville

    Freddie was patient, kind and a great teacher for my son. He taught not only boxing moves...he took time to discuss appropriate use of force and respect for others. He practiced deep breathing exercises with him and connected with him. My son loved it.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

There is pricing on my website: www.fightribe.us. My classes are geared towards small (10 or less) sized groups for more individual attention. As I'm a start up business, I have a lot of vacancies, and many customers actually receive a one-on-one session with me.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching boxing when I was a West Point cadet, when I first joined the Army Boxing team. I also have a history to teaching military and local nationals in security and tactics.


What types of students have you worked with?

Many students I've worked with are eager to learn and are committed. I find that these are the best students to work with. I've worked with generally kids, students, and young adults.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your coach can break down the technical details of his or her instruction, so that you can learn how to box safely and thoroughly. He or she should be encouraging and yet also demanding.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you ready to commit to a life-changing experience?

How do you react to failure? Do you bounce back or feel sorry for yourself?

Do you want to gain self-confidence and feel empowered through boxing?
