FREEDOM'S FOUNDRY



WHY JOIN US

IT'S WHAT WE DO

You've dreamt of hearing your music, walking onto the stage, and standing in the ring under the lights. Now it's time to transform the dream into reality! Some wrestling schools can teach you all the moves and high spots but fail to prepare you for all the challenges of the pro-wrestling world. Learning the physical mechanics is only part of being a wrestler, which is why Freedom's Foundry founder Eric Freedom spends more time preparing the next generation as performers and storytellers.

Training at Eric Freedom's Foundry turns an average athlete in a well rounded entertainer. Pro Wrestling is a fusion of stunt work, athletics and stagecraft. There is much more to being a professional wrestler than what happens in the ring. It requires quick thinking, improvisation, self promotion; these come from having illimitable knowledge of perfomance, techniques and match structure. You will learn all of this and more at Eric Freedom's Foundry.

  • Nothing in life comes easy
  • Look in the mirror; that’s your competition
