Sorry to hear that...my buddy had a problem with his nose but back then there really wasn't much you could do. I believe Everlast has a sparring helmet with a cage to protect your nose. I'm sure you're Sensei or coach will allow this until your nose heals properly. Good luck!

I use a fairtex headgear that is full face protector, but you are still gonna take impact to the nose if you get hit there. headgear can only do so much!
