    Kissimmee karate instructor accused of child molestation

    Kissimmee karate instructor accused of child molestation

    A Kissimmee karate instructor who attempted to break a world record for slicing apples in midair with his sword was booked into the Osceola County Jail on Friday and faces child-sex charges.

    Bradley Knight, 36, who runs Tiger's Den Karate Do Academy, was arrested about 5:30 p.m. at his dojo on Carroll Street after the parents of a teenage girl told investigators she had sexual encounters with Knight this summer, Osceola County sheriff's spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain said.

    The encounters took place at the academy, she said.

    Lizasuain encouraged anyone with information about other possible incidents to contact the Sheriff's Office.

    There was no indication Friday night that there are other victims, she said.

    "We just want to err on the side of safety," Lizasuain said.

    Knight faces four counts of lewd and lascivious battery and three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

    The karate teacher gained notice when he traveled to Japan with eight students in 2005 to beat a Guinness World Records record for slicing apples in midair. He cut 21 in 60 seconds.

    Knight's dojo advertises a summer camp for children and an after-school karate camp.

    Wow, this is only 20 minutes away from where I live. I'm really sorry to hear about this. At my dojo, we have a rule that no male instructor is to be alone at all for any reason with a young female student no matter how young they are to avoid any type of senairo like this or especially false accuzations.

    Will this **** ever end? How many pedo karate/tkd instructors have there been now? How long before they are stereotyped along with priests?

    Like camp councilors, coaches, priests, and chartered accountants, pedaphiles go to where the children are, where they have a position of authority over children, and where they will have the ability to be alone with them.

    Add in the lack of any "checking."

    Heck, most of the churches I grew up in have had rules about there always being two adults in any room with children. I can remember that from the 80's. Maybe it's time for Mcdojos to do the same.

    Ed Parker's rule: No dating students until they get to brown was a good one. By that time the shine would have dulled.
