    Long Hair?

    How detrimental would you say having long hair is for grappling? BJJ in particular?

    It's a fucking pain, it gets stepped on all the time. I had the girlfriend hack away at my customary indie-kid curtains about 2 months after I started BJJ, and I haven't gone back since.

    I had the same thoughts, my hair goes down between my shoulder blades. PoopLoops wears a hair net while grappling, and Kat and Ashy recommend something called a 'French Plait' if memory serves.

    "Iscariot is victorious!" - Dai Tenshi

    A combination of plaiting, Ouchless hairbands and wrestling headgear should take care of most problems that come with long hair. Other than that - get used to having people step on it and to pissing people off because they get your hair in their mouth. That's their problem, though.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    yeah you put your hair up or put it in a braid or something. I myself cut my hair short cause I am incredibly lame at managing long hair. I am thinking about growing it out again, only with short bangs. or something...
