    I've been doing martial arts for yeeeeeaaars and my ears are perfectly normal - just wear the bloody headguard most of the time, it's a pain in the ass but you get used to it

    It's not that common for Rugby players actually compared to grappleing and boxing, but yea, looks like i better start wearing a head guard
    It's not actually that common amongst boxers, although almost all grapplers have them to a certain extent. I don't grapple much tho (although i'm looking for a cheap bjj class), but i make a point of always wearing my headguard and ignoring the haters. I mean at the end of the day, you've got to wear one in competition, so you might as well get used to it.

    Is it rugby you play?

    I've played prop or second row for 5 years now without a headguard ever. I'm sure your ears won't get cauliflowed anytime soon.

    I think it might be more likely if your ears stick out a bit, but mine are quite close (obviously, but I mean the don't extrude much) to my head.

    Facepalm at asking women what they're attracted to and turned off by.

    Women are deluded creatures, dancing with unicorns in spring meadows, disconnected from an understanding of the carnal behaviour-directing desires of their DNA.

    If a guy is masculine and not a retard, it doesn't matter about a califlower ear.

    I do MMA, and I avoid getting cauliflower ears by draining the injured area with insulin needles. I have also worn ear-guards in the past, but I found that the added friction made choke escapes difficult.

    I have this problem lol :o: Although it has meant that I work harder to avoid getting myself choked in the first place lol, and it means that your technique on the escapes has to improve.

    Why don't you like headguards?

    Ask yourself, is it worth it?

    I train at Roger Gracie's in Ladbroke but that's expensive lol, £100 a month, I prefer no-gi also. http://www.gracie-barra.co.uk/index....d=71&Itemid=71 Dagenhams pretty closest to you.

    This is what I hate about it apart from the fact he messes with the feeling of my head etc, I just don't like them.

    I've heard of it but don't really know what causes it... from the posts in this thread I guess it's due to getting a blow to the head in rugby or something? Back on the topic itself though I don't think its unattractive, doesn't really bother me either way to be honest. I don't tend to look at the ears. As long as they're listening all is well.
