    I am really new and i have never thought of wearing a cup... but today we were training from the rear mount and shit. I was trying to escape but he kept on destroying my balls with his heels. I almost quit because of that, but I decided to stay and choke his ass out. I almost cried :icon_cry2

    Yep, working on guard passes and got caught good. Cup everytime from then on. And when it happened, guess where my cup was? In my damn gym bag about 10 feet away.

    ShockDoctor Compression shorts and flex-cup. For the mouthpiece, any basic boil-and-bite single should be sufficient.

    even with the damn cup on sometimes it gets dragged all the way to the side (ie when a behemoth is driving a knee through my guard) and starts grinding on my balls
