Quality Price Value
Its not a bad idea but takes some fiddling about to get it in place - you can't really just wear the under shorts for drills / padwork and then just drop the cup in for sparring, unless you want to spend 5 mins of 'solo sparring' in your shorts trying to fit it - I guess the only time you are going to remove the cup is for washing
I also have a pair of Bad-Boy compression shorts with cup and that is a case of simply popping the cup into the inner pocket, takes 5 seconds, and the slightly reduced stability is probably worth the convenience.
That said I'm yet to experience a full force hit to the jewels wearing either of these.
