should i maybe put tape on it?
first advice...train longer

now to your topic.

they make rubber things you can put over your ears, soku used to wear them, theyre kinda like finger tip med gloves....but i donno where you can get them, walgreens maybe?

or you could just tape them.

either way its going to be an annoying pain.

how do you roll with those?

No no no. I had zeros in my ears and they're basically closed up now. They just look like a pin hole at this point. I can get a wire gauge in there, maybe a 14-12 but that's it. I lucked out though and didn't get those little cat butt holes so many people get when removing gauges. Honestly, with a two gauge, he's in no danger of getting a finger in there unless he's fighting anorexic teenage girls.

Either ditch them or just stay at that diameter and everything will be fine. Cross my heart.

I'd let them close up, because guages are for douchebags.

Competing soon and you've only been training 4 months? Even if you're naturally gifted you should definitely train at least 1-2 years before competing (unless you just enter grappling tournaments).

Meh, four months isn't bad for amateur competition at a local venue. It really depends on how serious he trained in the past few months. If it was two hours, two days a week...probably not.

A lot of the guys here are on the mats/cage/ring five days a week for three hours a day. Some of that time is training some of it is conditioning.

I think getting in an amateur competition early is a good thing.

**EDIT**

Cardio Factor- Get on a tread mill and run a 5:00-5:59 mile and rest for one minute. Do that four more times and if you aren't puking you probably have passable cardio for competition.

Cool

again thanks for the feedback. you guys have been every helpful.

on the topic of me competeing, most have agreed with wallysworlds191, saying that i should train longer. when i said i will be competeing soon in a am contest, soon is the wrong word to use, i still have about 6 months. but i sure ill be ready by then, i did 3 years of high school wrestling and submissions come easy to me.other people have trained for less amounts of time and won.
my friend fought in his first cage match at 6 months and won. Ryan "Darth" Bader train for only a year with a wrestling backround and is now up for a 100000 contract.

i train 3 times a week and life 4 times a week. so i think i train enough, but im not sure.

I couldn't agree more. I don't know what could possibly motivate someone do purposefully deform their earlobes like this.
