What I mean to say is this:
When a person is struck in the head, he gets rocked by blows to the chin and nose area more than anywhere else. This will result in the aforementioned acceleration of the brain to a greater extent than can be dealt with by the CSF. I doubt that a person can strike another person of similar weight on the forehead with enough force to cause a concussion.
The headgear does not protect the crucial areas. **** headgear.Originally Posted by Goju - joe

Omega - how 'restrictive' is it to be wearing full gear and spar/roll?

Reasons not to wear headgear:
Creates blind spots so you can't react correctly.
Adds 1" to persons range so you can't train to react correctly
Neck must support heavier gear especially after training for awhile.
Those are your arguements, not the that they don't stop the majority of concussions where most people get hit.

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
