About Steel Warriors:
Steel Warriors is a London based charity tackling knife crime in the UK. They melt down knives taken off the street and recycle them into free outdoor calisthenics gyms. These gyms not only look to ignite conversations in local communities about knife crime, they also stand to give young people a free facility where they can gain more physical confidence.
Steel Warriors have so far reached over 800m people with the launch of their charity and have received support from a range of influential people like boxer Anthony Joshua and businesses across the construction sector as well as Sky and Co-op.
“While there is no one quick fix, no single answer, there are non-profit groups out there working to tackle the crisis at its core – and you’ll find few as innovative as Steel Warriors” (Red Bull)
