Two American Martial Artists Travel to India in Search of Mapping's Roots by on Monteinmo

THE CAULIFLOWER EARS CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION. It was April 1998

in the city of Mysore in Southern India. Phil Migliarese, ajujutsu black belt under Relson Gracie, and I were sitting on the fence bordering the Mysore central market, taking a rest from the oppressive heat. Having been in India for a few weeks, we'd grown accustomed to the inordinate amount of attention we drew from the locals. Wherever we went, a small crowd was sure to follow.

So it was no surprise to have two men drive up and park their motorcycle close to where we were sitting. However, when they dismounted, they glanced at us not with awe or curiosity, but with disdain. Furthermore, they gave us the scantiest of looks, as if we didn't even merit their full attention. It was when they turned away that we noticed their ears. Cauliflower ears. Wrestlers.
