  EDWARD  WISNER  DONATION     FUNDING  PROPOSAL      


SECTION  1:  Proposal  Narrative             Program  Background  

  The  LIONMAN  Foundation  programs,  BLUE  LION  Karate  Academy  In  School,  After  School  and   Summer  Enrichment  Programs  are  composed  of  a  model  curriculum  and  many  elements  that   support  students  and  f amilies  in  the  following  essential  areas:     1. Martial  Arts:  Martial  Arts  training  provide  youth  with  a  structural  environment  in  which  to   develop  self-­‐discipline  and  self-­‐control.  Progression  through  the  belt  system  and  team  leaders   requires  learning  and  executing  specific  skills  that  b uild  progressively  and  are  independent  of   age.  Higher  b elts  and  becoming  a  team  leader  can  only  be  achieved  through  diligence,  focus,  and   self-­‐discipline  all  skills  that  are  required  for  educational  and  professional  success.  Benefits:   Respect  for  their  ability  to  achieve  progressively  harder  goals,  self-­‐discipline,  patience  and   respect  for  others  with  greater  skills  and  experience.     2. Learning  Skills:  Long  term  educational  (and  professional)  success  comes  from  learning  “how  to   learn,”   techniques   that   are   different   for   each   student.   The   program   will   provide   tutoring   assistance  in  particular  subjects,  but  the  focus  will  be  more  on  identifying  learning  patterns  and   teaching   skills   and   techniques   that   will   support   those   patterns   over   the   long   term.   The   self-­‐ discipline   skills   being   learned   in   the   Martial   Arts   programming   will   be   tied   with   the   learning   skills,  with  staff  using  similar  language  and  support  patterns.     3. Family   Support:   Parents   and   other   family   members   will   be   provided   with   regular   verbal   and   written   communications   that   will   include   ideas   for   reinforcing   the   program   messages   in   the   home.   At   the   end   of   each   school   semester   session,   the   program   hosts   a   family   celebration   program  that  will  include  belt  testing  dance,  music  and  team  performances.     4. Community/Cultural   Mentoring:   The   program   will   involve   volunteer   “elders”   from   the   community   to   mentor   the   students   in   areas   of   respect,   goal   setting,   multiculturalism   and   professional   success.   This   programming   will   also   include   opportunities   for   the   students   to   participate   in   business   and   cultural   experiences   (for   example,   ethnic   dancing,   writing,   singing,   entrepreneurship,  etc.)   5. Focused   Assistance:   The   program   will   provide   small   group   and   one-­‐on-­‐one   sessions   to   teach   goal  setting  and  conflict  avoidance  behaviors.  Each  student  will  regularly   set   progressive   goals,   which   will   be   monitored   by   instructors,   in   education,   Martial   Arts   and   other   areas.   Conflict   avoidance   programming   could   include   modeling   responses   to   bullying   or   pressure   on   negative   behaviors.       Students   participating   in   BLUE   LION   Karate   Academy   In   School,   After   School   and   Summer   Enrichment   Programs   will   exhibit   increased   ability   to   achieve   progressively   harder   goals,   and   improved   self-­‐discipline,   patience   and   respect   for   others.   They   will   have   developed   improved   personalized   study   techniques,   and   learned   how   to   approach   classroom   assignments   with   those   individual  techniques.  This  will  allow  students  to  i mprove  their  performance  within  the  classroom   and   on   standardized   tests.   The   youth   will   also   have   an   increased   respect   for   and   experience   of   cultures,  and  increased  connection  with  their  parent/caregivers.  They  will  have  grown  to  a  greater   understanding   of   the   importance   of   education   and   setting   realistic   goals.   The   youth   will   have   increased   their   ability   to   manage   and   avoid   conflicts,   and   improve   behavior   stressful   and   confrontational   situations.   These   results   are   measurable   through   pre   and   post   program   evaluations,  and  review  of  report  cards  and  behavior  reports.    


SECTION  2:  Organizational  Profile     The  LIONMAN  Foundation  (LMF)  was  establish  as  a  non-­‐profit  organization  in  2000  to  build  on   Grand  Master  Eric  “LIONMAN”  O’Neal  Sr.’s  long  term  commitment  to  supporting  the  youth  i n  the   New  Orleans  community.  All  programs  are  based  on  the  mental  and  physical  skills  acquired   through  martial  arts,  combined  with  mentoring  and  promoting  higher  academic  achievement.     The  goal  of  the  LIONMAN  Foundation  and  i ts  BLUE  LION  Karate  Academy  In  S chool,  After  S chool   and  Summer  E nrichment  Programs  (BLKAEP)  are  to  foster  the  future  success  of  young  people  by   helping  them  to  acquire  the  self-­‐discipline  and  attitudes  that  support  academic  achievement  in   school  as  well  as  i n  life.  The  E nrichment  Programs  seek  to  meet  three  needs  of  low-­‐income   students.  First,  low-­‐income  students  have  a  great  need  for  productive,  supervised  activities  during   the  school  year,  and  their  families  are  typically  unable  to  pay  for  such  programs.  In  addition,  these   students  are  already  at  a  high  risk  for  academic  failure  because  of  lost  of  significant  skills  over  the   summer  break.  Finally,  these  youth  also  struggle  with  low  personal  growth  skills.  They  typically   have  low  self-­‐esteem,  low  self-­‐control,  limited  abilities  to  set  and  reach  goals,  and  limited  views  of   their  future  opportunities.      Formal  research  has  shown  that  Martial  Arts  is  an  excellent  way  for  youth  to  gain  focus,   concentration,  strategy  and  self-­‐esteem  skills  that  b enefit  them  in  their  academic  activities  and  all   aspects  of  their  life.  (See  Attachment  A  for  a  summary  of  this  research.)  To  achieve  this  goal,  the   program  aims  that  participants  will  (1)  demonstrate  fewer  b ehavioral  problems  and  (2)  exhibit   improved  academic  achievement  in  school  over  the  program  period.            The  LMF  has  b een  providing  a  positive  refuge  and  learning  experience  for  thousands  of  youth  i n   New  Orleans  for  over  25  years.    LMF  continues  to  serve  over  700  youth  at  its  in  school,  after-­‐school   and  summer  programs  at  several  public  and  parochial  schools  as  well  as  at  NORD  community   centers  throughout  the  city  of  New  Orleans.  90%  of  LMF  students  earn  “A’s”  and  “B’s”,  i n  their   academic  work.       At  the  present  time  the  LMF  and  Grand  Master  Eric  O’Neal  Sr.  has  partnered  with  Disney’s  Martial   Arts  Festival  in  search  of  LIONMAN  ~  7  Y oung  American  Heroes.  The  LMF  and  BLUE  LION  Karate   Academy  School  and  Summer  Enrichment  Programs  will  host  many  events  partnered  with   Disney's  Martial  Arts  Festival  to  provide  an  opportunity  for  students  to  show  case  their  talent  and   skills  as  well  as  all  the  information  they  are  learning  throughout  each  semester.  Disney  will  be   presenting  to  all  students,  attending  scheduled  events,  hats  with  the  Mickey  Mouse  Ears  and   authentic  certificates  signed  by  b oth  Mickey  Mouse  and  Grand  Master  Eric  O'Neal  Sr.  Partnering   with  the  Disney  Martial  Arts  Festival,  T he  LMF  and  Grand  Master  O’Neal  will  kick  off  the  amazing   and  exciting  LIONMAN,  “Knowledge  i s  Power”  20–City  Tour  this  summer  i n  Anaheim,  California.     http://www.thelegendoflionman.com/     http://lionmanfoundation.com/                    http://www.facebook.com/LIONMAN7777777                  http://twitter.com/#!/LIONMAN7777777

In October, 1986, Grand Master O’Neal left the corporate world to return to martial arts and a focus on youth. He opened up BLUE LION KARATE ACADEMY in a garage, moving quickly to a storefront studio in Gentilly Woods Shopping Center. In the past 25 years, BLUE LION has grown into the largest and most successful martial arts organization in the southeast. Through the Academy, Grand Master O’Neal has trained over 30,000 youth in the martial arts. Most of his students have graduated from high school


and gone on to college, and are now successful in a wide range of professions. He has trained many of the city’s police and business leaders, including Chief Eddie Compass. Also in 1986, Grand Master O’Neal returned to competition, and captured over 100 consecutive championships including the 1990 United States Karate Alliance (USKA) World Karate Championships Grand Champion Title. He went on to win Seven World Titles in his weight division. The USKA World Karate Championships is the same tournament that Chuck Norris won and that launched his career with the great Bruce Lee. Grand Master O’Neal was inducted into the International Karate Hall of Fame in 1988 along with Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee. In 1998, he was appointed to Team USA for the Goodwill Games and competed in Cancun, Mexico representing his country. He returned with two Gold Metals and one Silver Metal and was named Competitor of the Year by the President of the organization, Dr. Mayle. For the past 25 years Grand Master has worked with the youth of New Orleans, building self-esteem and self-control through martial arts training. He has established satellite after-school programs in many public and parochial schools, bringing the joy and discipline of martial arts training to youth throughout the city. From the beginning of the Blue Lion Academy, Grand Master O’Neal has combine training in the marital arts with a focus on self-esteem, the value of education, multicultural, and respect for all individuals. To support these values, Grand Master O’Neal developed the LIONMAN™ Super Hero concept. Students coming into the Academy and its satellite programs are exposed to a comprehensive program that supports the whole individual, and stresses the long term value of education and the skills learned in the martial arts classes. Seventy percent of the students in the programs have straight “A”s in school, and all show increased academic performance and improved behavior both in and out of school. Grand Master O’Neal is constantly exploring ways to bring his programs to youth who would otherwise not be able to afford the training. In 2003 he founded The LIONMAN Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing discipline, respect and better future to youth throughout the city. Through the Foundation, Master O’Neal is working at Fannie C. Williams Middle School to establish a 6th Grade Academy and with the ADEPT elementary after school program. Bringing the discipline of martial arts training into the schools provides students with increased interpersonal skills and self-esteem, leading to better performance both academically and socially at school. In his personal and professional life, Grand Master O’Neal has overcome many obstacles because he understands the minds of young and old alike. He devotes many hours to speaking at schools in and around the country. He teaches that martial arts are 10% physical and 90% mental. Grand Master O’Neal dedicates his life to teaching that physiology to today’s youth to help them overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds facing them.
