MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Bullying is an epidemic that seems to be plaguing schools nationwide, but one local martial arts academy has found a solution.

The Coastal Academy of Martial Arts in Myrtle Beach offers a free, non-violent anti-bullying class once a month.

Their Facebook fan page says that the Coastal Academy of Martial Arts is "a school focused on the personal development of individuals young and old through the martial arts. We teach a mixture of many different styles and systems of martial arts with strong ties in American Kickboxing Jui-jitsu, Judo, amongst others aligned with a strong yet practical Self-Defense curriculum learned by yet catered to all age groups and student bodies."

That class is open to school-aged children and their parents who hope to put an end to bullying.

WMBF News Facebook fan Gigi Linette Nichols posted a photo of the class. Nichols said, "[It's] my son's 1st ANTI-BULLYING class.... AND IT WAS FREE!."

The last class was held on Saturday, March 10 at 10 a.m. at the Fitness Zone in Little River

The next class will be offered on Saturday, April 21. For more information about the classes and Coastal Academy of Martial Arts, send an email to coastalama@gmail.com, call 843-455-6876 or check out their Facebook page.
