0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Hematomas on the ear are painful and inconvenient. 

Once they calcify without treatment, a person can develop cauliflower ear; a permanent deformity that increases the risk of ear infections. 


USA wrestling has already took measures that makes ear guards mandatory for all competitors Schoolboy age and below.


The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) should allow competitors to wear ear guards as a safety precaution so that participants can enjoy all the benefits of competition without the risk of acute injury to the ears. 

As a result, more people would compete in IBJJF tournaments and the number of ear injuries will dramatically decrease.
