    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why I am on team "Headgear 4 life"

    So, yeah, I train BJJ. I am not "t3h de4dlee", but it's fun, and I train hard.

    Twice in the last year I've had to have this

    done to fix a bubble on my ear, so my ear doesn't end up looking like a lump of hamburger pressed to my head. Stitches through your ear suck.

    I had that. I also got a nice scar where the doctor sliced it open to scoop out the goo because I'd left it slightly too long.

    Christ, for a second I thought that was earwax. Headgear ftw!!!

    How long did you guys have to carry that **** stiched to your ears??? Were you able to train while having those (dumb question, I know)?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    The pads you see are held to my ears by a few stitches through the ear. Those stitches made my ear *very* sore. I tried to just drill, and during a pass, my partner hit my earguard covered, but still stitched ear, which hurt like hell. The stitches were in for five days, which allows for the skin and cartilage to re-attach to each other. Even the day I got the stitches out, my ear was super sore.

    Short answer: no training. All the way around, this has sucked both times I had this done. Team Headgear 4 Life!

    Some tips: if you get a bubble on your ear, you have 5ish days to get it drained, or the cartilage beneath it will start to die, and the bubble will fill itself in with scar tissue. If you don't care about cauliflower ear, just don't do anything when you get these bubbles of fluid/blood on your ears.

    If you care about not getting cauliflower, you either have to have something like I had done, or you have to have the fluid drained repeatedly, and a pressure bandage applied to your head. Draining+pressure bandages don't always work, so even if you start down that road, you may end up having the same thing I got done to your ear.

    Some people's ears are simply more sensitive to this kind of injury. If you're one of those people, you'll know soon enough. If your ears feel hot, slightly swollen, or painful more than a few days in a row after training, you could be in the sensitive category. If you're worried, or know you're sensitive, get headgear.

    Chicks don't dig cauli, and it's not a "man badge", it's an avoidable injury.

    I would get the swelling and hotness pretty regularly, but it would always go down within an hour or so after training thankfully. The only time I really had cause for concern was when some fat douchebag crossfaced me by grinding his elbow along the side of my head and mangling my ear in the process, it was purple for a bit, then calmed down, now its just a tiny bit thicker than the other side. I've been lucky, but I now have headgear just in case I get back into serious rolling.
