    Personally, I wear head gear so I can go into work the next morning without looking like I got beat by a catholic school girl wielding a wiffle ball bat.

    Being relatively new with MMA, the headgear has also helped fight the flinch reflex and feel more comfortable with the high contact level. The more comfortable I feel with taking a shot, the more relaxed I am and able to avoid it (i.e. slip).

    I would definitely recommend wearing headgear to ease into the sport.

    Thanks for all the responses. Pretty much what I was thinking, though I do have new reason to appreciate wearing it.

    I knew a guy who would "forget" to bring his mouthpiece every time he showed up for sparring. The trainer would tell everyone else to "Go easy on [Dick]. He doesn't have his mouthpiece."

    Then [Dick], who was about 5'11" and 200+ lbs, would tee off on whomever he was sparring with, knowing that he wouldn't receive any hard shots in return.

    Funny thing... he always had shin guards and headgear, but no mouthpiece.

    I never tested his groin protection, but I probably should have. :evil6:

    We know we SHOULD wear headgear, but we dont really just out of laziness most days. Ewwwwww, extra sweatinessssss.

    We're not actively trying to KO each other, and we're not throwing elbows or kicks to the head, so we dont usually get beat up too bad. Worst shot I ever took actually was a jump kick to the ribs.

    Sounds too good to be true ,


    I want to grow my hair back out I just realized it is Combat Sports ... god they make good **** .
    Yep. It's quality headgear. It's quite secure for grappling - I've been able to pop my head out of guillotines without having it so much as shift. I've yet to have my hair fall out while sparring in it, whereas I regularly need to re-cram my hair under my wrestling head gear.

    I have this head gear and I actually like it quite a bit



    It's pretty comfortable and slim so it doesn't really get in the way or block your vision. I can't stand head gear with chin and cheek protection.
    Depends on who im training with. One coach i train with doesn't push it, you only wear it if you forgot your mouth piece.

    But the other dude i train with, you have to have headgear.

    I know how you feel.

    I used to let guys tag me in the dome until I found some great headgear for really cheap, now I put it to use.

    Made me really appreciate all the stuff people've said about not being able to see out of but it's not as bad as some make it out. I'd rather get hit with it than without.

    And for that second question in here, I still try to avoid and/or cover just as much as I normally would.
