HOMER, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We’ve all heard about good old fashioned Southern Hospitality, but Northern Louisiana based multiple business owner Daryn Clark has put his trademark on a concept called Southern Ingenuity (http://www.SouthernIngenuityInc.com) - the name of the successful service provider company he’s operated for nearly 20 years, as well as an apt description of the progressive, pro-active principles he’s applying to his latest endeavor, the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning website, WhatsYourFight.com.
When Clark founded the Southern Ingenuity in 1991 with $150, he could never have imagined that he would eventually build a multi-million dollar business with 140 employees; over the years, Southern Ingenuity has collected over $42 million in funds to help provide care for people of varying ages and degrees of disability from that $150 investment.
Although Clark began studying kung fu in high school and trained early on in Judo and Tae Kwon Do, it was the tremendous stress of working with Medicaid and running his 140 plus employee companies serving so many disabled people that led him back to martial arts in his late 30s as an outlet for the stress.
A longtime instructor at Clyde Stanley’s School of Martial Arts in Minden, Louisiana, Clark has earned a fourth degree black belt in Isshinryu karate, a black belt in Ju Jitsu and competed in national and international tournaments; he also teaches boxing, San Soo, Muay Thai and is a Certified MMA Conditioning Coach via the National Exercise and Strength Training Association, all the while running SII.
While he’s never drawn a salary for his work with students in martial arts, the natural born entrepreneur is excited about the business potential of passing to other entrepreneurs the magic of having better health through being physically active and positively addicted to healthy choices via WhatsYourFight.com
At first glance, Clark’s passion for martial arts would seem at odds with his successful “day job” in provider services, but in both endeavors, he is devoted to helping reach their highest potential. He doesn’t believe that success came from just hard work in the office but also hard work directed towards a healthy lifestyle.
