    San Diego area karate instructor arrested for sex with a minor

    A karate instructor at a Poway studio has been arrested for 500 counts of child molestation, including allegedly having sex with a female minor, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department announced Monday.

    Josh Thomas Churchill, 31, is the operator at United Studios Self Defense Karate Studio at 13331 Poway Road.

    Investigators say over more than three years, Churchill committed the illegal acts at the studio and various other locations.

    The suspect was taken into custody Friday and remains in jail on a $25 million bond.

    Churchill is charged with 200 counts of lewd acts with a victim 14 or 15 years old, 200 counts of oral copulation with a victim under 16 years old, 99 counts of lewd acts with a child by force and one count of sodomy with a victim under 16 years old.
    The stock advice here is to make sure you know who's teaching your kids martial arts, although some cursory checking doesn't really yield any red flags (beyond the red flag of teaching for USSD, which is a red flag for martial arts quality but that's about it). His FB page shows pics of him snowboarding, eating/drinking with his wife, hanging out near the ocean etc.

    Because of the nefarious nature of predation, I think the best thing you can do is keep good communication with your kids and teach them well. But I'm not a parent so feel free to disregard.

    By staying busy. One count per act.

    Last Thursday, sheriff's deputies were seen crashing through the front glass door of United Studios Self Defense Karate Studio at 13331 Poway Road
    Gives new meaning to "dojo storming".

    If I have a chance to run down by there while I am working I will have to take a look at the damage.
