Guillotine Set up & Technique

The guillotine choke is one of the most practical and common submissions seen in both MMA and Jiu Jitsu. Once you have an effective guillotine, you literally base your whole ground game around it.

It resembles a meathead front headlock, but done correctly is actually extremely technical to apply and also to escape.

The choke can be applied from the standing postion, from the floor when on your back in guard or a variation of guard.

The guillotine is often applied from the guard position. It can be especially effective against a wrestler’s double-leg takedown, as the head is often in the perfect position for the choke to be applied.

Arguably the most effective guillotine technique from guard is the Marcello Garcia Guillotine.

This version needs a bit of shoulder flexibility.
