Getting kneed in the balls from open guard
Hi, I'm not sure if anybody else has had a problem with this, but lately I've been taking a knee to the nuts when I'm on the ground in open guard and the other person is on top. They don't even mean to do it on purpose, it just happens when they crash into me. What can I do to stop this? If somebody who didn't even intend to hurt me can smash my nuts on accident, how did the Gracies get away with it all those years in their no rules fights? I've seen videos of Royce on his back with his legs/nuts wide open against standing opponents.
