GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A new martial arts program is teaching bullying and predator prevention to kids in Greenville.

The Pro Martial Arts Armor program offers classes geared towards teaching kids about fitness and life skills, including bullying and predator prevention.

Doug and his wife Laura Stout decided almost a year ago to open a facility like this in Greenville after the recent spike in bullying. 

"My wife and I wanted to do something where we can give back to the community. We also wanted to work with kids and help them develop self confidence in themselves," Doug Stout said. 

They told FOX Carolina the goal is to help kids identify a bully or even a predator and most importantly how to protect themselves.

More information about Pro Martial Arts' classes or their grand opening this Saturday is available on their website.
