    I'm glad that I started training a couple of weeks after I started this thread.

    SQUEEZE YOUR KNEES TOGETHER. THE ARM SHOULD BE TRAPPED BETWEEN YOUR THIGHS, NOT FLAT AGAINST YOUR BODY. tHE REASON YOU ARE HURTING YOUR COCK IS BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING ONE BY NOT DOING THE TECHNIQUE PROPERLY.

    P.S. Use the goddamn search engine.

    Sorry for not searching. But in many mma fights I have noticed that the arm is crancked across the body, and the fulcrum is often close to the nuts. These guys are doing it in a real situation, not dojo, so it's hard to do it with proper technique.

    Man armbars are much easier with a cup on. I'm glad I wear them at tournaments.

    Just pull the arm slightly to the side on an angle. The arm will be resting on your upper/inner thigh instead of near your balls. I have never rolled w/a a cup, & this works just fine.

    the arm should not be hitting your nuts if you do it right you need to arch your back to finish the armbar

    Well I searched, and this is all I came up with;

    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?t=310134&highlight=armbar

    any others?

    Anyway a few of you seem upset by repeated questions, perhaps they should all be put in the stickies so they don't get asked again. maybe all repeated questions could be put here;
    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?t=21869&page=1&pp=20 who knows, maybe once every possible grappling question is asked, no new threads will be made, and everyone will only post in the repeated question stickies.

    I never where a cup when I train, and I have pulled off plenty of armbars and never hurt my dick.

    Took the words right out of my mouth.

    It sounds like you are an MMA fan assuming something about grappling.
