Freddy McNeil is a friendly, soft-spoken man who barely talks above a whisper on his job as educator/human resource coordinator for the Durham Public Schools.
But in the world of karate and taekwondo, when this 37-year-old Durham native speaks, his voice is heard loud and clear.And for a good reason.
On July 1, 2000, McNeil, a sixth-degree black belt, became the first martial artist from North Carolina to be inducted into the World Karate Union Hall of Fame.
McNeil was nominated by the great pioneer grandmaster Larry Isaac for taekwondo instructor of the year.
McNeil owns and operates the Freddy McNeil School of Tae Kwon Do, which is located at the Hall of Fitness Center on North Roxboro Road in Durham.
McNeil says that the martial arts and his regular job with the Durham Public Schools offer him the best of both worlds.
"I'm a people person," McNeil said."I love working with people, especially kids because they are our future.In both of my occupations I get to do just that."
The fact that McNeil has made such an impact worldwide in the martial arts should come as no surprise to the 75 or so students who are in several classes that he teaches on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
The first thing that a visitor notices when arriving at the school is that McNeil is addressed as "Sir" by each of his pupils - no matter their age - and that he returns the courtesy.
"It's one of the first things that we teach here," McNeil said "You have to maintain courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control and indomitable spirit if you are going to be successful in the martial arts."
McNeil's classes are open to anyone age 5 and up, and they are among the least expensive of any martial arts school in the Triangle.
"We don't turn anyone away," McNeil said."If there's a kid who really cannot meet our regular fee, we'll work something out."
"This is indeed a great school, and Freddy is the best," Floyd Mitchell said.
"I've known Freddy since I was principal at Chewning Middle School, where I coached him in track.He's got me back into the martial arts after a 10-year hiatus.Freddy has always been a leader, even back when he was in junior high.I'm more than happy to be one of his students."
"Mr. McNeil has been my instructor for one year," Chris Sterline said.
I'm impressed with the fact that Mr. McNeil will accept at-risk kids in his programs.He gives many of them who have no fathers or brothers something that they really need, and that's love."
"Freddy throws a lifeline out to kids who are in need," Watters said.
McNeil also operates a successful martial arts tournament.This year's Freddie McNeil School of Tae Kwon Do /Karate/Kung-Fu Championship will be held at the Orange High gymnasium in Hillsborough on April 13.For more information, call (919) 563-1977.
