    I am going to start training soon and just got a pair of long fight shorts. i was wondering if most people wore draws under their shorts, or just a jock strap. it seems that they way the shorts fit you aren't supposed to wear anything under them, but I don't really want to show up to class with no draws on and that not be kosher.

    Wear a jock strap or compression shorts. Your kids will thank you.

    Compression shorts are the best and Under Armour makes great ones for cheap and they have up to Four X one's. I would def give them a shot! They keep your junk from moving around!!

    I wear underwear under my jock and then sometimes vale tudo shorts over that depending on the shorts I'm wearing. Just a straight jock is too uncomfortable for me.

    My layers work like this:

    Underwear > MMA cup > Compression shorts > trunks

    The underwear holds your stuff in place. The cup protects your stuff from harm. The compression shorts keep your cup from moving. And the trunks are so nobody sees your ass-sweat through the compression shorts. ;)

    my lineup is:
    jock with flex cup
    fight/compression shorts
    board/ loose shorts.

    the cup is to keep the boys together and safe, but the flexible cup doesnt sacrfice movement. the compression/fight shorts keep my thighs and ass covered if the bottoms of the shorts hike up.

    Shock doctor compression shorts (I have the hockey jock but its simply a matter of cutting off the sock tie downs).

    Sprawls (have yet to find a better short for training, never feel like you're going to rip a seam

    You just love to run the risk of a crushed nut. I had a guy that I spar with who freeballed when we do stand up. After a blcked turn sidekick went south and nailed one nut to the inside of the leg. He now wears a jock, a cup and a groin protector.

    It was no laughing matter. He was really hurt and had to go to the doctor and stuff.

    Still I giggle thinking about the freebawle!
