Yeah, cups are manditory for striking, too much potential for permanent injury there.  I just take mine out when it's grappling only time as it causes me more pain to wear it grappling than it does to occasionally get a slight bump.

I'm glad I wear a form-fitting cup ;) ;D

As for shin guards...minor shin banging...not so much a problem.  Heavy banging around, then cover up I say, afterall I want to train the next day, or walk normal at work :)

I've been teaching submission fighting since the early '90's and always wear a cup..a shin in the huevos has never been my favorite submission.  We lever elbows, knees, foreheads if you have to off that area....unless you have the power to draw them up....get a nice banana cup...

Aloha all, After reading this thread I have to make one thing clear. In GM Peraltas school and any of his black belts' schools, it is MANDATORY to wear a cup!
In my school I require them at start up to purchase one or they will not practice techniques. I am a direct black belt from Peralta and I even wear one religously when I teach so that students can feel free to practice groin shots without pulling back even if they are working with me.
I agree that not all schools are the same, but most of our techniques have groin shots and it helps the student to deliver a full shot to the groin without a concern if the Uke is wearing a cup or not. We do not pull back, if we did, then we would train to pull back on the street which is contrary to the system we train in. That is what makes us different.

Not mandatory at my school, but a good kick sure makes them think it is...

Since this post was orginally listed under "Women and Martial Arts" and was directed to shin guards.............

There is nothing more attractive than big knots on a womens legs when she is wearing a dress or shorts.  Seriously, I can take pain like any other women, but I don't need to look like a punching bag.  For sparring, I wear shin guards.

I use shin guards only when I'm sparring.  I took a kick to my right shin bone and the pain was excruiating and lasted for some time.  My healing time is not as fast as it used to be.  However, if for some reason I'd forgotten my gear, I would spar without them.  It really is up to the individual..."know thyself".  There are folks that wear the total foot gear, but mine is the combination shin and foot protector so my toes are uncovered...I like to be able to grip the floor and too find total protective foot gear a distraction and sometimes slippery.

I would use shin guards. I got tired of being kicked in the shins also after two tournaments... most of the tournaments were back to back. This coming one, I couldn't train for a week due to that injury in the shins. I would DEFINATELY try shin guards... I am in this upcoming competition.

Good for you Keke - wear those guards, plenty low kicks - oops. ;)

Remember fight your fight!  8)

Soifua,

More important than shin guards - WEAR a cup - Groin shots are good all day long. :D

Personally I used the shin guards for sparring. But also I wear  mens cup because believe me  I used once a womens protector and it hurts like hell!! when I received a front kick.

I would like to use them more then I have.At UPLAND we use them when our SIFU " OKS" it. I`ve returned to KAJUKENBO trainning for 14 months and the only time I use them was when I am sparring my SIFU hard and that was only 2 times.And that was the longs 2 minutes beating I got in a long time.

I agree with groin protection- even our women use it. As for shin guards, only when sparring due to the spontaneity. For self-defense, the unprotected shin kicks allow for conditioning.
