The Statue Project

Kickboxing superstar and Multi-Sport Legend Fredia "Cheetah" Gibbs, once known as "The Most Dangerous Woman in the World" with a record of 16-0 and 15 KO's will be the first female athlete honored with a statue in Pennsylvania and the first female Martial Artist statue on the Planet!  The Statue will serve as a tribute to all Martial Artists around the world!


Born and raised in Delaware County, PA, Gibbs was an All-American standout in basketball and track and field, before taking the world of martial arts and the fight world by storm, winning three World Championships each in Muay Thai Kickboxing and Tae Kwon Do and fighting as a Top Contender in women’s professional boxing.


The Fredia Gibbs Bronze Monument brings together an iconic female athlete with a legend from the world of art, Sculptor Jennifer Frudakis-Petry, also of Pennsylvania. 


Members of "Team Fredia" worked with Frudakis-Petry on the momentous  Emlen Tunnell bronze statue project, which was unveiled in Radnor, PA in 2018.
