    Tap instead of gritting your teeth and squeeze your knees instead of trying to armlock someone with your own balls.

    You don't need a cup or mouthguard

    This is not worthy of the advanced grappling forum, expect it to be moved.

    Their arm shouldn't be that close to your groin, clamp it closer to your knees, it'll also give you a better angle for overextension. Also, you shouldn't have posted this in the advanced forum, this is a basic technique question.

    I always wear both, but some places ban cups as you can use them to enhance armbars. Personally, a mouthpiece prevents the pain of many a stray elbow or other spaz, and cups prevent the oh so popular knee to the nuts on guard pass.

    I would advise you to refrain from posting in the advanced technique areas until you are a bit more experienced on the mat and here on BS.

    Edit: In case you don't know, I'm the moderator of the technique section.

    As a brand new white belt I have personally done both to people already. The other day while attempting a guard pass I felt my knee impact a guy's pelvic bone and apologized before he even felt it. But then he did feel it and had to take a minute to recover, and I couldn't help feeling bad. I'm thinking of bringing my pillow-like kneepads for a while until I stop doing that.

    I would definitely always wear a mouth guard. I've chipped teeth and bitten through my tongue when not wearing one.

    There is more leeway on wearing a cup but I also wear one all the time.

    I have several chipped teeth (but, hey! I'm British) from being kneed, elbowed and headbutted by beginners. As for the arm bar problem, as people have said ur doing it wrong.

    Really these sorts of questions are best put to your instructor, I mean that's what you pay for, right?
