    Why not a cup? I've been wearing one ever since this huge guy pulled me down after a throw and made me square him with my knee. I didn't get hurt, but I was thinking "what if it had been the other way around?" :eek:

    You are supposed to pull the arm off to the side and break the elbow with pelvis bone, I just pull my arm bars on my cup, easier that way.

    This is a good suggestion as it will help alleviate some of the pressure that would go on your genitals, but in the end, you often have to crush your nads a bit anyway. It's tolerable and an acceptable trade.

    Yeah, first thing I learned about armbars was to squeeze those fuckers tight (your knees) or else you'll squeeze those fuckers tight (your nuts).
