    TKD Expert Charged With Luring A Child Under 14

    Aug. 4, 2004. 01:00 AM


    Man charged in luring of child

    BOB MITCHELL
    STAFF REPORTER


    A martial-arts expert who competed internationally for Canada has been charged in connection with the luring of a child for a sexual purpose.

    "I'm shocked ... I cannot believe this," said Jung Ko, who owns the Jung Ko Tae Kwon Do Academy where the accused worked.

    "I've known him for the past 15 years. ... I would trust him with my own children."

    The accused, who teaches a few adult competition classes, has been working primarily as an administrator, arranging tournaments and camps for Ko's three academies in Vaughan, Toronto and Keswick.

    Ko said the accused, who has a fifth-degree black belt, had competed for the Canadian National Tae Kwon Do team in the 1990s.

    York police allege a 12-year-old boy was lured into exposing and touching himself on a Web cam over the Internet. It is also alleged that a man exposed himself to the child.

    Police said the victim had nothing to do with the tae kwon do operation.

    Police were contacted after a family member discovered the youngster had been acting suspiciously when he was on the Internet.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact York Police's Child Abuse Unit at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7075 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

    Shane Nesbitt, 34, of Vaughan has been charged with one count of luring a child under 14 for a sexual purpose and one count of exposure to a child under 14.

    Or not, basically the same radio station said yesterday that the parents noticed the boy doing strange things at the computer and quickly shut it off. Then the parent reactivated the computer and checked the logs of the child.....

    Scary stuff. Gotta keep a watch out on those kids.....

    This is a very loose connection to the world of martial arts. I think the artical focuses too heavily on the tae kwon do side of things when really that is quite irrelevant.

    You raise a good point.

    But, this is just another example of a martial arts myth.

    The myth being that 'martial arts creates character.' The idea that doing these ancient traditional martial arts will make you a good person. Ronin69 said a while back 'Martial arts creates character; martial arts has lots of characters."

    As clearly demonstrated here and in other posts and threads, the myth is simply not true.
    Yes, you can better yourself with a study in martial arts, traditional or not, but it will not make you to bright shining example that society should model itself after.

    Oh yeah, not to mention this serves as another reminder for parents to aware of such things going on that respected sensei's may do, and to caution them to not use martial arts as merely a day care.

    The parents should be able to/ can watch their children's classes, and it can make for stimulating discussion outside of the class.

    I'm curious as to what exactly "luring" the child means... At the risk of being extremely controversial, surely there is a possibility that this was not totally without the 12 year old's consent? I mean from reading the article it seems like the 12yr old never actually met Nesbitt offline...And how exactly could he have forced the 12 year old into it without having any real world contact with him?

    I know that the kneejerk reaction is to assume that this is the typical "paedophilic monster" case... but like i said, perhaps it's not as clear cut as you'd think.

    Funny how these sorts of crimes seem to happen quite frequently. Must be a coincidence. (Smirks)

    If any significant number of people trained in SCARS there might be a possibility of perv related news.

    Besides, the general consensus is that mail-order self-defense systems aren't really considered legitimate martial arts and therefore unworthy of mention in the first place.

    Very true.

    Das Moose - There is a good reason why governments have created a definition of something called a 'legal age' and 'age of consent.' Regardless of whether a say.....twelve year-old wanted to expose himself to a man, the law rightfully sees the child as unable to make his own intelligent decisions with the dangers of the world. Therefore whether of not the child wanted to expose himself or not is irrelevant, another person may likely have had influence.

    I am in no way drawing any conclusions as to whether this man is or is not guilty here. We do not have the information but I'll post updates to the case as I become aware of them. You DO NOT know what the man has said to the child, you do not know what type of communication he has had.
