    Bullshido litmus test

    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...6&postcount=14

    Hypothesis: Incidence of caulliflower ear is inversely proportional to level of bullshido.

    Evidence:
    CE: Judo, wrestling, boxing, bjj, kickboxing, rugby.
    No CE: Figure skating.

    Inference: CE, a disfiguring and unattractive injury, is a consequence of training and competing in fighting styles that aren't bullshit. No one wants it, some of us are susceptable to it.


    Discuss.



    As an aside, recommendations on good headgear are appreciated. My asics suck and slide over my ear, folding it and making the whole problem worse. My wife's starting to bitch at me about it (on top of the fact I get home at 915pm most nights) and I've had about 3ccs of fluid drained from my ear over the last few weeks.

    I agree on your assertion. Clubs with a higher prevelance of ear deformation are less likely to become bullshido.

    Go for ear protectors with a softer edge. They are more expensive but worth the extra cost.

    I have rubberized ears that don't cauliflower even under intense attack from purple belts named "Crazy Adam" and "Termite". A black belt at my BJJ club has the same superpower. I suggest you include a special case in your classification or I may approach CMAist levels of faux-righteous indignation >: (

    Differential susceptability is mentioned.

    You failed to intercept my obvious parody in the trapping range.

    Watch out though, I used to think I was similarly impervious.
    Don't know what changed.

    Before you spar/roll or whatever, try massaging and bending your ears a little. Back when I was getting CE a lot, I found it helped to get the blood flowing beforehand. Might just be placebo effect though.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
