Do not wear rings while fighting.

Do not wear rings while fighting is not a tip but an order!

It is also a form of good education in the gym but often you see the often wearing the rings like the wedding rings that are often never taken off but that can in some cases be elements that can create accidents / injuries.

It is different to wear rings for self-defense but in that case it is not a sporting situation and they are “special” rings, designed to be used.

It makes no sense to wear decorative objects while doing combat sports but especially in wrestling sports even worse if with Gi such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu,Judo or Sambo, etc.

What you should never wear while practicing:

  • Piercing (everywhere)
  • Rings
  • Earrings (albeit tiny)
  • Necklaces
  • Bracelets
  • Etc.

Don't wear rings while you're fightingUsually the earrings and piercings are removed but the rings while fighting or some bracelets are not.

This is a very serious choice in particular for rings that are made of metal where there can be consequences that create scarnifications to your fingers.

Necklaces and bracelets is more difficult because they come off first breaking but it does not mean that they have not made you cuts or marks even if superficial only for your negligence.

Even if you’re doing a technical job you never have to wear anything that you can hook or frame.

Or an earring crushed against while you are struggling and the pin that slips into the flesh, nothing serious but why still make a small wound for negligence.

If you are in the gym and you see your training partner wearing a ring you must immediately tell him to take it off.

I understand that there are objects to which you are very attached and often in the gym you go before going to work or returning from work before arriving home and you do not trust to leave in the bag valuables or affective in the gym bag but today many gyms have containers where to put valuables as well as the wallet and left in the secretariat.

You never have to struggle even if it’s a light or technical job wearing accessories or rings while struggling that can get entangled and during a movement injure or tear your skin.

I have deliberately inserted images of accidents that occurred in the gym, they are strong images but they are intended to make you understand with the strength of the image of the danger you run if you wear a ring during training.

If you do not want to fight without hands to recover an accident, always remove rings and various accessories when you are in the gym.



I have inserted at the bottom of the post some images of injuries with ring bjj.

I deliberately inserted them at the bottom because they are images that can upset some of you readers but it is made to better understand how a simple object like a ring can cause you important injuries.

Do not be negligent and try not to wear anything other than the required uniform, such as the Gi or anything else when practicing wrestling or combat sports.


If you see someone wearing it, kindly ask him to take off earrings, rings, necklaces, etc.

A simple gesture can prevent unnecessary injuries such as a torn eyebrow, an open ear lobe, mauled fingers, etc.

Stay Tuned! Safety in training is important.
