    Don't be a *****. I am susceptible to this, and I still train, I just wear ear guards. If you're worried about this, you wear ear guards, and you'll never have this procedure done to you; it's simple.

    Can't deny that.

    Look its more the cosmetic aspect of having 'bubbles' on your ears, cauliflower ears and the uncoolness of helmet hair and looking like a retard with head gear.

    I will buy the headgear though.

    Eh, so what if you look weird, who cares. It looks better than cauliflower.

    When I was rolling for a while, my ears would get pretty battered and would hurt for weeks on end, thankfully I didn't suffer from cauliflower, just really sensitive ears. It sucked when I went to the barber to get my hair cut, the barber folded my ear down and I almost jumped out of the seat.

    buy it in pink, and imagine it to be a fashion statement ;)

    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

    I guy I roll with has a red Koral gi, and red/black Cliff Keen twister head gear--quite sharp looking.

    There is one company that does custom headgear, Cliff Keen. CK headgear, is, IMO the comfiest, and it doesn't screw with your hearing too much. You can get tons of different custom color combos, unfortunately pink is not among the choices:

    Not pimping for Cliff Keen, I just think they make a very high quality product.

    But you know what sucks? Having long hair. I have to wear this fucking cap thing over my head gear so my hair doesn't get stepped on. I literally overheat with that thing. One of the reasons I'm avoiding going back to BJJ...

    That and being made fun of all the time. :(

    Get the standard martial arts dork look: close cropped hair or shaved head, and some sort of beard or moustache.

    I have long hair, so I'm worried now.

    Cap thing?
