We've had a little drop off with our student base, but I think it's more due to the economy than anything else.

I think the loss of dignity is very specific to the school.  We have added MMA to our school (2nd fighter just won his debut), and are experiencing a good growth spurt recently.  It all depends on how you present yourself, with or without MMA.
