    I've worn a cup ever since I squared some guy in Judo class when we both fell during a throw. You should wear one, but avoid using it as a fulcrum for armbars.

    Yup, ever since I got my nuts squashed or kneed a couple times during my very first class.

    I wear one because I have always worn one training Kickboxing/Karate so it feels too "Out there" to not wear one in a Gi.

    I don't, and haven't really had any problems. Though I'm sure a few bad nut shot experiences would have me shopping for a cup real quick.

    I wear a cup because it gives me more leverage when I'm armbarring someone.

    That and the avoiding pain in my testicles thing.

    I think it'd be pretty inconsiderate to not wear a cup, honestly.

    Compression shorts. Cups dig into my thighs too much, cause odd sores..... and the "no no baby honest those are from my cup" line just doesn't cut it.

    Maybe I should use baby powder....

    I don't honestly have any problems. On rare ocassion I'll get racked while doing straight up ground work.

    Any time striking involved however I put the cursed thign on.

    I do not yet wear a cup grappling. But I'm willing to bet the time will come when I painfully change my mind. Until someone knee-rides my boys, I will remain blissfully ignorant to needing a cup.

    Speaking of which.... maybe that's the BJJ nutriding I hear so much about?

    Other than a few botched early armbars, not using a cup hasn't really seemed to make a difference for me or my training buddy. Truth be told, I tapped myself out more often than I've ever had anything bad happen.

    Find the injurys thread, read about my exp with not wearing a cup. I now wear a cup if I 'think' I might possibly be in a situation where someone might come near my nuts.
