Please, Please- No Rings on the Mat

I can’t stress this enough: wedding rings, earrings, nose rings, toe rings and everything in between- please take that stuff off.

I’m not telling you this due to some distaste for jewelry, I am just legitimately worried that you will end up injuring yourself or a partner- the mere idea of what could potentially happen makes my stomach turn a bit.

Earrings can be ripped out, so can nose piercings, etc., not to mention fingers can get broken and then some medical professional is going to have cut your wedding ring off.

Trust me kids, as they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” So please, I’m sure you love those earrings, and no one is going to judge you for taking off your wedding ring: please keep yourself and your teammates safe, and leave them off of the mat.

That’s all- have a great day everyone!
