For Investors - Introduction
We will be teaching a particular Chinese martial art to people with autism with the expectations that the students will be healthier, their families will find working toward the goal of a college degree fulfilling, and that the daily scores will provide a quantitative basis to evaluate changes in sleep, diet and medications. We wished to use cameras with innovative software to determine if there was a correlation between various movements and emotions. As scoring each set for each student on a daily basis is labor-intensive, we wanted to explore using the cameras and their software to analyze postures as well. Had such an analysis been feasible, it would have had applications in a number of other sports. There were manifest difficulties with facial expressions especially in the autism and we reamin unimpressed with camera precision at the range that we need. Our curriculum material makes intensive use of video, but is language-independent, so translating lesson plans and obtaining teachers is all that is required to expand to other countries. Estimates vary from 4 to 12 million people with autism in the United States and well over 150 million world-wide. Rather than reject students we have been obliged to expand the disability categories of interest to us. This currently includes, among others,  ataxia, cerebral palsy, arthrogryposis and Down syndrome. This means one million people in California, 10 million in the United States, 55 million in China and 250 million on Planet Earth. We are looking for

1. a short-term loan (six months; $30,000) to get the first school built out.
2. if someone has a small building we could lease with an option to buy it would make our lives somewhat simpler
