    just so your juji-gatame remains $tr33t d34dly? Although you are right in that it would make more sense to wear your cup on your face if you are planning on falling back into a juji on th3 $tr33t.

    The most likely use of juji gatame on the deadly streets is from underneath, for example when someone tries to rape choke you.

    After you have to jar your nuts out of your pelvis a few times, you will start wearing a cup.

    If there's one thing karate has taught me it's to suck my nuts up into my pelvis.
    ....
    Anyhow I always wear a cup. Usually wear a mouthguard. And I have armbarred people on teh street without hurting me nuts.

    The hilarity would be decreased if I wore a cup.
    Mental note: Never let Upa assume mounted position while rolling.

    I need a real job. I have built many homes. Move to Austin and give me a job with excellent benefits now. I'm very tired of scouring this city for dependable subs.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    D-did you say DEPENDABLE subs?

    That's like saying "experienced virgin".

    So...I took most of your advice and have been wearing a cup.

    It has prevented several knees from hitting my balls.

    Unfortunately...since I am very new to BJJ (and anything remotely related), I apparently didn't fall correctly when we were training throws the other night. I totally fucked my shoulder on the first throw, and almost severed a testicle w/ the edge of my cup because my legs landed on each other on the next.

    Good times.

    I'll continue to wear it...just need to land softer.

    Hey...I'm a big guy...not really used to being thrown around. In any case...I'm learning so much each day...and I'm loving it.

    No, dude, after class is over, you can take it off.

    Getting thrown is tough, though. Make sure you learn your break falls and ask your partner to go slow the first few times.

    going hard on throws without first having the experience of throwing and breakfalling is asking for trouble.
    More human than human is our motto.
