    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What kind of Cup/groin guard for grappling?

    I did use the search function and I checked omegas sticky but it could not find anything specific :crybaby2:
    Usually I roll without a cup (never had any problems so far *fingers crossed*) but today I rolled with my TKD cup and that thing is a pain in the ... groin area.
    Are there any "grappling" cups or something like that? Can you recommend something (if a link would be appreciated, international shipping req. since Germany and **** you know) Or point out which from KWON is good for grappling?

    Thank you in advance.

    FWIW, many Judo, Freestyle, Folkstyle, and Greco Roman Wrestling practitioners do not typically use a cup at all. Due to people using the cup as a weapon, it's illegal for those competitions.

    I like the shock doctor one, it has bendable sides and doesnt dig in when you pull gaurd, triangle, ect. also has compression shorts instead of regular jock configuration, which I like.

    https://www.combatproshop.com/Search...FRJdxwodCxo4Lg or google shock doctor flex cup.

    EDIT: agree with tom, but if u need one for ur mma classes ^^^^^

    This may have probably been best served in the Physical Training, Diet, and Health Forum.

    Here is a suggestion, I use this one:

    http://www.combatsports.com/detail.aspx?ID=23893

    You can wear the shorts under your Gi/board shorts and pop the cup in when you are ready to train. They don't bunch out like the typical jock strap style models. Also, the cup is flexible so you don't have irritation on your inner thigh and other areas that the cup has contact.

    I never liked not being able to use a cup, since it made me unable to claim victory by bludgeoning someone with my kevlar reinforced genitalia into submission.

    I use the underarmor cup with compression shorts every blue moon. Usually its the same cup with a jock strap. I play a lot of open guard, with tons of emphasise on butterfly and spider. My nuts experience contact at least twice a nut. If not for the cup, I'd given up on BJJ a long time ago.

    yeah...I can't believe anyone would roll w/out a cup.

    If I know my opponent isn't wearing a cup, I'm passing right up the middle, knee on the nuts non-stop!
