How to create a skullcap of hair

I've just started regularly attending Brazilian jujitsu. Please help me find the perfect hairstyle so my locks of love don't become locks of I-am-totally-going-to-choke-you-to-death-with-your-own-braid!

I'm enjoying it quite a lot, but my hair is not. Any hairstyle I try comes out after a good five minutes of grappling--braided ponytail, "Mickey Mouse" buns, double braids. Give another five minutes, and the whole this is an awful matted mess. Not to mention there's the very real danger of getting strangled by my own hair.
My hair is past-shoulder length, thick, and soft--all very nice for anything that doesn't require a restrained hairstyle. Short of cutting it (I'd rather not, I'm growing it out for Locks of Love), does anyone have any ideas on what hairstyles would be best for this? I'm horribly uncoordinated, so all my attempts at french-braiding have failed miserably.
Ideally it would keep my hair untangled and tight to my skull for the duration of a two-hour practice, with minimum fixing needed.
