Twins Groin Protection
It’s a universal symbol of Muay Thai. Just as distinctive as the colorful shorts and the traditional Wai Khru Ram Muay headband, the steel cup is your best friend when trading low kicks and knees with a sparring partner or resisting opponent. Heck, this author wears his steel cup even when holding pads. Let’s just say a stray teep kick led to a vomiting, writhing in agony epiphany. If you’ve ever watched a UFC event during which a low blow took place, you’ve undoubtedly heard Joe Rogan extoll the virtues of the Muay Thai steel cup. In a sport as brutally powerful as Muay Thai, a simple plastic cup simply doesn’t hold up to the abuse as one made from steel. It kinda goes without saying that steel is going to protect your groin better than flexible plastic, right? Twins offers a killer steel cup that is sure to prove its weight in gold the first time you take an inadvertent low blow. The padded leather front layer and the foam padded edges make this cup feel as comfortable as any other, but its steel construction keep you in the fight after taking a vicious shot below the belt. It’s an inevitability of any sport that its participants will receive a shot to the berries—even golf has its low blows, as seen in countless hilarious home video television shows. How you take that shot, and whether it puts you out of commission or not, depends on what kind of groin protection you’re wearing at the time of impact. Go with a competition-proven, historical company like Twins for your groin protection, and you can be sure that you’ll be as equipped as possible to deal with a crushing shot to the berries. No cup can boast 100% immunity from the agony of a low blow, but Twins makes a damn good steel cup, and it gives you the best shot at taking that low blow and making it through with most of your dignity intact.
