    How many of you don't wear mouthpieces either?
    While grappling?
    Never (well once, for like five minutes).

    I have taken a hard shot to the nuts probably less than five times. And none of those were really that bad.
    Given that you train with ninjas, I can see why it might be an issue.

    Wear it all the time. I also wear it at work for really active concerts. I've gotten used to it over the years, but everytime I buy a new one it bothers me for a little while.

    I also think its partially a partner thing. Its not really fair for your partner if they have to be warry of you not wearing a cup, but you dont have to be as cautious because he is wearing one.

    Also, the whole squishy feeling is really kinda creepy.... Like when you expect him to be wearing a cup and he's not....

    That and the avoiding pain in my testicles thing.

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

    one of the blue belts I'd roll with occassionally seemed to free ball it. Rolling with him was the only time I ever felt anyone's junk on me while grappling...

    oh yeah and I don't wear a cup *rolls eyes*

    First day of BJJ: guard pass where you grind through the guy's nuts.

    Second day of BJJ: I wore a cup.

    Been on ever since. It used to dig into my thighs, but I've gotten used to it.

    It was real useful about a week ago when a blue belt essentially jumped on my nuts in order to pass my guard. I told him about that after class and he said "well I assumed you had a cup on."

    Do you really want to risk it?

    I always wear a cup. I'm so used to it now that it feels weird when I train without one when I forget it in the laundry or something. I hate forgetting my cup.

    Also, I agree with the common courtesy of wearing a cup so that your training partners don't have to worry about crushing your junk. The cut-through is my favorite guard pass. If done in the textbook fashion I don't normally knee anybody in the balls, but depending on who I am sparring techniques don't always get executed cleanly. I'd rather not have to worry about drilling somebody with my knee.

    The one time my cup would have come in handy was the Arnolds earlier this year. I forgot to bring my cup to the tournament and in my first fight I was in side control setting up knee on the belly with the brabo grip behind his head. So I get a good deep grip on his gi, grip his pants at the hip and pop my knee up. Once the brabo grip is in there really isn't any getting out of this knee on the belly. Well I learned that one escape is to just post on somebodies nutsack does the trick. He posted hard right on my junk and I hollered and went right back to side control. I reset my grips went up again and he did the same ****, so I held it for the points and then took the mount. Pissed me off. I won't ever forget my cup again on tourney day.

    I'm pissed because I was wearing a mouthpiece while sparring at one of the NW throwdowns here. I got punched in the face, not hard or anything, right? Next day, I was eating lunch and part of my tooth fell off. What the ****? It was one of those $16 shock doctors, too.

    Still, I figure it's safter to wear one than bit your tongue or something.

    I also wear ear guards.

    The real question is, how many of you wear one of these:

    Or am I the only one? :color:
