Martial Arts Instructor Arrested For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting a Student

The Washington Post has reported that a karate instructor has been arrested; he was employed at the Potomac Kempo located at 5958 Kingstowne Center #110, Alexandria, VA 22315. 

Fairfax County Police was notified of the sexual abuse on November 24, 2021, by the victim's parents. The victim alleged that they were sexually abused by 35-year-old Kai Rendon several times since summer. Rendon would often take students to his home in Alexandria for private karate lessons. During this time, the abuse was said to have taken place. 

Rendon was employed as a martial arts instructor from January 2019 until November 2021. He is facing three counts of indecent liberties by a custodian.

Can I Sue For Being Sexually Abused By a Martial Arts Instructor? 

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced sexual abuse lawyer. He represents sexual abuse victims in civil lawsuits. We recently asked Kevin to share the guidelines for filing a lawsuit after being sexually abused by a martial arts instructor

"Martial art studios and other athletic facilities are expected to be safe environments where children and adults can attend lessons and classes. While most of these studios cultivate a safe and inviting environment, too many cases have been reported of instructors sexually abusing their students. It is important that these victims know their legal rights."

"The martial arts studio has a legal duty to provide a safe environment for its students. This can be implemented by installing video monitoring software and conducting background checks on all staff members. Failure to provide these safety precautions can lead to the studio being held liable for abuse that takes place."

"Reporting sexual abuse by an instructor to law enforcement can result in criminal charges. However, victims may also have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the martial arts studio for negligence. Additionally, the studio owner could be considered negligent if they ignored previous complaints of misconduct by an instructor. Victims and their families should fully explore their legal options by discussing their possible case with an experienced sexual abuse lawyer."
