Karate teacher uses below the black belt skills to master schoolgirl seduction 2008,02,21
Friday 2/22 By Ryann Connell
A public high school teacher who parlayed his martial arts skills into becoming the darling of the girls he taught has been arrested for allegedly taking one of his students to a love hotel and having sex with her, according to Friday (2/22).
Tetsuya Enodoki was once a member of Japan's national karate team and he finished runner-up in his division in the 1993 Asian karate championships.
But since 2001, the 36-year-old black belt has been a history teacher at the Tochigi Commercial High School, where the karate team he formed and coached became one of the strongest school clubs in the country.
Enodoki was particularly successful in coaching the school's girl team, which was among the top five in Japan.
But now, it appears he may have been too successful in getting the girls on a mat of an entirely different kind to the one he normally fights on, though he vehemently denies allegations that he bedded one of the girls he taught.
"I know the girl you're talking about, but I have never taken her to a love hotel," Friday quotes Enodoki as telling the police.
Others are not so sure about the "duke of the dojo."
"He's a pretty good-looking guy and lots of students developed a schoolgirl crush on him. The only problem was, he was fully aware of that. I remember him being just a little too close to the girls he was teaching. He used to put on these leering grins as he grabbed hold of schoolgirls and threw them to the mat," an alumnus of the high school where Enodoki taught tells Friday.
"Enodoki's kicking was outstanding and I remember he used to refer to himself as the Conjurer of Kicks."
Police say Enodoki seduced a second-year student and took her to a love hotel in Tochigi on the night of July 8, 2006.
Another graduate of the high school is not surprised by the rumors.
"I remember the girl being around whenever groups of girls got together and talked about Mr. Enodoki. I get the feeling Mr. Enodoki might have realized she fancied him and invited her out to the love hotel with him," she tells Friday.
"I wouldn't be surprised if there are other girls involved in the same high jinks, too." (By Ryann Connell)
