    Like they all said, HEADGEAR. When ever my ears get sensitive from rollling I put on the headgear for 2-3 weeks till they feel better.
    I know one guy with "potsticker" ears ( that's the Japanese translation) He has over 50% hearing loss in one ear!!!!

    wrestling headgear works but it is a hassle. I just use pre-wrap around my head and ear, then tape around the pre-wrap. You see grapplers and rugby players doing this all the time. Works like a charm with no worry about needing to mess around with it during practice, like you do with headgear.

    Anyone have timeframe on how fast cauliflower ear takes effect in most cases? My ears have been a bit sore after some nights, but it never seemed like enough for cauli. Am I just wrongly assuming it should hurt more?

    Get wrestling headgear or become skilled with a syringe.

    My first ear injury was excruciatingly painful to bend for several days. It was incurred during wrestling.

    While the taping idea is good, I've noticed I get bruising to my ears far more from being punched in the head during GnP. I don't think there's any solution to it. :(

    As far as I can tell, cauliflower starts with an injury to the cartilege. Your ear would swell up a bit if the injury was bad enough to cause bleeding from the tissue. You have to monitor it, especially after the next time you roll, to see if its swelling at all.

    Finally, ice your ear if it gets sore and /or swollen. This will help keep down the swelling.

    Headgear works. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I bought the addidas headgear from the Martial arts supply store that is like a block from renzo's. Its like, one avenue over from renzos (I think east) and they give you a discount if you say your from Renzo's. I liked it more than the harder head gear, but that's my personal preference.

    I'm not a doctor, this is totatlly from my own experience with cauliflower ear.

    A GP I saw said that repeated lighter blows might also contribute... :(
