Curtis Page, father of Bellator star Michael Page, is currently in trial, accused of 22 sex charges.

Curtis Page, a world champion kickboxer and father to Bellator star Michael Page, is currently on trial after being accused of multiple counts of rape and abuse. The 60-year-old has been officially charged with 6 rapes, 14 indecent assaults, and 2 counts of sex with a child under the age of 13.

Page, who held positions at the Great Britain Martial Arts Association and the British Kickboxing Council, has since been barred from teaching following his arrest. Curtis is a three-time kickboxing world champion, who trained and gave his son, Michael his 5th dan black belt.

According to a report from Daily Mail, three women came forward a few years back, accusing him of multiple abuses between 1985 and 1995.

“To those people who he didn’t sexually abuse he can do no wrong. The prosecution simply say he has a dual personality,” prosecutor James Thacker said in court. “Mr. Page had a liking for young girls and groomed them.”

He states that the three underage girls looked up to the martial arts instructor as a “father figure” and “person of authority”.

Page allegedly groped one victim when she was 11-years-old, took her virginity when she was 12, and had a sexual relationship for years after.

According to the prosecutor, Page raped another minor after she revealed to him that she had been abused by another older man. Rapes also allegedly occurred after martial arts classes. When she was older, they allege that Page “raped her with a blade held to her throat and threatened to throw her out of the window of her 18th floor flat”.

A third woman alleges that Page indecently assaulted her two times as a minor, before starting a sexual relationship when she turned 16.

For his part, Page denies all accusations, insisting that he only had sex with the three girls after they turned 16. According to the report, Page says that the three women just ‘got their heads together’ to get him into ‘an awful lot of trouble’.

The trial is on going, with more information and testimonials expected to be made public soon.
