Title: No support from the family in my training (venting)

What’s on their mind:

Hello.  I’m 17 and have been training in MMA for 2 years now and from day one my family has hated it. They have no respect for the sport or the martial arts in general. It’s become a major problem lately as they have decided to not let me train anymore. Which upsets me greatly, I can say that I wouldn’t be the person I was today without it. This is my life and it’s what I love to do. I don’t know what I could say to help change their mind. They’ve come up without almost every reason why they think it’s wrong. Is there any advice you could give to help me ease them over into letting me train again.
