  1. It hasn’t affected my training at all because that’s a priority in my life but something’s gotta give so I’ve decided to forgo tournaments for a while until I pay off most of my bills.

  2. It hasn’t affected my training or teaching per say. The only affect it has had on me is my inability to compete in as many tournaments as I did last year. We’re almost through half the year and I’ve only been able to compete in 1 tournament! 🙁 It has affected some of my students. Some have to work more to pay the bills which are taking up their time to train.
