    Cup and a mouthpiece whenever I step on the mat. Pretty standard for our gym.

    I find the inside of the thigh works better anyways, so I never armbar over my cup if I can help it. I do however drive my steel cup into people's spines in competition.

    I don't wear one for grappling class. But if I could find one like this : http://www.waspnation.com/Archives/Pics/Codpiece.jpg I'd consider it.

    I've used a cup ever since I first learned the knee through pass and a guy twice my weight performed it.... very well.

    The cup helps with leverage, but if you count on it that's not really a good thing. If you're used to only using the cup for leverage, some time without it to get a feeling for it is definately needed imho. It's way to easy to squash your own balls when you are just used to cranking it into your groin. Going without fosters "cleaner" technique so you don't screw up and **** up your own balls when you're the guy who's actually getting the advantage..

    I usually go for the pelvis or whatever it's called right about teh genital area. Inside of the thigh is fine I guess, I just feel like I'm losing control if I slip too much with the arm. Yes, I'm weak and most people I roll against are strong. I need to take away every chance they have :/

    The pros outweigh the cons really, unless it's a badly fitting one. I'd rather multiple kicks to the balls than getting them caught and/or crushed with my cup.

    I once swept an opponent who weighed about 210. I had him up in the air, but he changed trajectory in mid-air, readjusted himself, and landed knee-first directly on my testicle.

    A few weeks later, the same thing happened with the same opponent.

    And you know what? I STILL don't wear a fucking cup.

    I'm honestly a bit shocked at the number of people who don't wear cups.

    How many of you don't wear mouthpieces either?

    No mouthpiece when grappling either. I probably should though, as I tend to grit my teeth a bit.

    I always wear a mouth piece; I almost always wear headgear when rolling live (have had cauliflower ear, had a bitch of a time getting rid of it, don't want it back, and am used to headgear from high school wrestling so unlike some people I don't feel stupid looking); but I never wear a cup. I can understand how it would be inconsiderate if I were constantly stopping the action due to being hit in the balls, but I honestly can't remember the last time this has happened in the 3 years I've trained bjj.
