Single and Double Leg Takedowns: Ow.

Maybe I’m just a wimp, but we’ve been practicing single and double leg takedowns in class lately, and I keep smashing my ear into my partner’s hip bone. Which offers some insight on how wrestlers get cauliflower ear so quickly- but man, it hurts.

Does this happen to anyone else? And are you just as stubborn as I am and just keep smashing your ear anyway? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!

    I’ve never hurt my ears with a double leg. They usually get hurt when people smash my face from side control!
