    About a month or two ago I lopped off 18 inches of braid which went to "Locks of Love "( donated in my wife's mother's name who died from cancer ) which is a cancer group who makes wigs for people suffering from the effects of chemotherapy ) then shaved my head . I left some photo evidence in KP training log .



    I haven't missed it much unless the wind is blowing and I forget to bring a hat . My training partners thank me everytime we grapple/wrestle and I now have my peripheral back when I tuck my chin .

    Turned into a win/win situation .

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

      I have dreadlocks past my shoulder. So when I first started BJJ I was slapping my partners in the eyes with my dreads. I just wear a t shirt around my head to keep my hair wrapped up.

        I also recommend wearing women's stockings to cover your hair depending on your hair length.

          Fucking towel head looking fool , you have to be talking out of your ass. How the hell are you keeping the shirt on ? I have tried things similiar in nature and it just doesn't work .

          Unless of course ... you are using staples and/or nails .

          You can't even drill on the ground with something wrapped around your head/hair with out it coming off the first time you bridge , roll , or shrimp .

          I liked the being their guard and choking/gagging them as stray hair falls in their face , even more effective when they have a mouth peice in .

            well this actually works ... but you have to have it in braids, micro braids , or dreads .... and you look like doof , but you get to keep your hair .

                My wife disagrees a.) and b.), but I agree with your last point, especially in the summer, so keep my hair shorn. I buzz it in the summer and let it grow in the winter, with occasional trims, and then back to the summer cut again. I used to have fairly long hair (between the upper edges of my shoulder blades), but it just got to be too big of a pain in the ass, especially when training in unairconditioned dojang in Hawai'i and surfing.

                    Cut it off. I did.

                    That was the mid 90's. Shortly after, I started having sex again.

                      I have long hair and it's a pain in the balls and I don't even do BJJ. I do Shotokan, but any spinning kicks, or just any rotation that is too quick and I get whipped in the eye or it flies in my mouth and I choke myself out...

                          Not only is the hair in the mouth disgusting, it is also gross as all fuck when you're training with someone with a big mop that's soaked with sweat.

                          NASTY.

                            When I had the stupid "sort-of-long-but-not-really" skater haircut, it wasn't really a pain for BJJ. I remember actually fighting an armbar one time by grabbing onto my hair.

                              C-section after three failed inductions 10/26/05. Gwyneth just had her first birthday and celebrated her second Halloween.



                              I keep telling her to keep her hands up and forget that crappy Oly style TKD stance, but I'm just her Dad, so WTF do I know. She is getting better with her hand technique, though. She caught me with two good jabs after watching UFC Fight Night with me last night. Lucky for me, I managed to slip her right cross.
