    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    I roll with a blue belt who is pretty similar in size and strength to me. He wears a cup, I do not. I have never been hit in the nards while rolling with him, but he has used his cup as a weapon when he's in mount. He'll underhook my legs with his, and arch his back to drive his cup into my sternum while on top of me in mount. It's a dickish move, but to each their own, I guess.

    I think a cup for grappling is pretty unnecessary, I'm way more concerned about my ears....and there's no such thing as cauliflower scrotum.

    I've been rolling for years and never really had any issues without a cup.

    I've been doing judo for a few months, and we were doing some kind of inside trip where you step in, hook the leg and push forward landing in their guard. Needless to say, I took the most serious knee to the balls of my MA career drilling that move...

    erhm... Ultimately in Judo I have had a hard time finding one that doesn't seem to increase the pain of getting thrown. Also when I am doing my throws sometimes my legs need to be really close to each other (classic seoi nagi?); cups tend to get in the way of those throws for me. That being said I haven't done a lot of shopping around for cups i usually just buy some from big five or some sporting goods store.

    I agree that a cup can be an awesome weapon in jujitsu class. Nothing like having a hard cup smashing up against your lower back as your getting choked out...

    I never announce that I wear a cup, because I like to keep the element of surprise ;)
