Police say Edmonton martial arts instructor charged with sexual assault

Edmonton police say an instructor at a martial arts school has been charged after allegations of sexual assault.

They say Kevin Ford, 47, was arrested and charged Thursday after two female victims came forward to report they were sexually assaulted at the ATA Martial Arts School in Edmonton’s west end.

Police say the women, who are 19 and 25, allege they were touched by Ford during classes and individual training sessions in 2018.

Ford is charged with sexual exploitation and two counts of sexual assault.

They say others may have information that would help in their investigation and ask any additional complainants or witnesses to contact them.

Police say ATA Martial Arts has been owned and operated by Ford since 2003.
