Read our latest blog to find out how InPower Academy CIC uses the power of martial arts to inspire, motivate and empower young people.
My name is Daryl Chambers the founder and CEO of InPower. We are a trauma-informed organisation that use martial arts as the vehicle for change with young people. We blend eastern practices with practical sessions for a young person to realise and then take steps towards their optimal selves.
Personally martial arts has been a part of my life since 11. It did so much for me not just physically but mainly mentally and it instilled certain ethics and values that allowed me to dream bigger and really believe in myself. Feeling this was needed on a wider scale I set up InPower in 2012 with the motivation that martial arts can change peoples lives. We incorporated as a CIC in 2016 and since have been fortunate enough to win the FSB young entrepreneur and be included on the 2019 small biz 100 lists. Last year we were also featured as one of the top 100 social enterprises within the United Kingdom and included on the SE100 list. These accolades are great and we are grateful for but we are more focused on the impact we are making and will continue to make.
Our ten-year goal is to impact the lives of a million young people with the InPower ethos.
