yeah, so we were sparring and he's a bit new and suddenly dropped all technique and went swinging for a knockout and my pride wouldnt let me slow us down and i hit him good in the ear enough for him to go down and now he can't hear. it's been a couple hours. is this normal? how long should i wait to take him to the hospital? if this is normal what is the treatment? thanks.

Um, you should take him to the hospital now because you probably broke his eardrum.

It's probably a ruptured eardrum. It'll heal on it's own in 1-2 weeks, hearing should come back well before then though. Probably worth a visit to the doctor if it hurts too, in case it did any other damage.

Train responsably! And go to the doctor, if you hit him hard enough in the head to drop him its not a bad idea for him to get checked anyway.

sorry, i was on the phone when i made my last reply. Don't fighters get knocked down/out on a regular basis in training? I'm serious. I don't know. I"ve never been to a real gym where pros train, but I've heard of some gyms in MMA where they say they knock eachother out, like chute box and maybe others... I don't know. you guys tell me. I'm sorta looking forward to it for the experience, though I work hard on defense, but I want to condition myself for hard strikes, so wouldn't I(and pro fighters more so) have to get hit pretty hard?

Never take affirmative action. You are best to wait as long as possible. At the very least, wait it out until blood and brain matter is visible coming out on the carpet, then you will know it is time to take him to the hospital.. Or, try asking him by speaking into his other ear, his working ear, if he feels like going to the hospital, or if he feels any sort of pain or discomfort. Your next move depends on what his answer may be, and if you guys have shoes, be ready to put them on before you head outside.

what you are doing is not only stupid but very dangerous.

Try to hit him a few more times it might come back.

But back then it was the "virgin" that caught people's attention. It's not every day a virgin conceives and bears a son. So you keep that for a couple of hundred years, and the next thing you know, you have the Roman Catholic church.
