Diligent said:I don't wear a cup in wrestling and I haven't had any 'mis-haps' ... but ever since after my first day of BJJ, I ALWAYS wear a cup in BJJ. My first day of BJJ ... we practiced leg-locks (my teacher is a Sambo champ, too), and the friggin' set-up for one of the leg-locks was practically stepping your foot right near the other guys balls on the inside of the leg, so I almost had my twins crushed a few times ... it was quite scary. I kept asking everybody if I should wear a cup and everyone was saying that they didn't, but I was like forget that, I'm wearing a cup! I even made a thread about it on here a lil' while ago, haha. I'm proud to say my 'guys' have not been harmed.

There are moves in wrestling (especially freestyle) that could raise your voice a few octaves, but I don't think I could wear cup unless I had a pre-existing injury.
Diligent said:Ummmmm ... ok ...? Are you insinuating that I think wearing/not wearing a cup should be a yardstick for 'measuring manliness'??? ... or that I think that not wearing one is a declaration of "balls of steel"???
Gothic_Coop said:In all my years of wrestling or coaching wrestling I have never worn a cup. Just a good pair of breifs to take the boys out of play.
