Perfect Your Guillotine Grip With Lachlan Giles
The guillotine choke is one of the most effective No Gi chokes you can add to your arsenal. It is a very high percentage submission that comes on extremely fast, leaving your opponent little time to defend or escape once the choke is set in motion.
One of the most common escape tactics to get oneself out of the clutches of the classic arm in guillotine, is to attack the hand that is covering the choking hand. This non-choking hand is fortifying and locking the guillotine on, but because it is on top of the fist that is doing the choking it is more susceptible to being peeled off and controlled. Once it is peeled off, it is nearly impossible to finish the choke and follow through with the submission.
In the video below, excerpted from his High Percentage Chokes No Gi series from BJJ Fanatics, Lachlan Giles shows how to make the necessary gripping adjustments to change the course of the choke once the non-choking hand has been compromised.
Lachlan Giles is one of the most accomplished Australian BJJ competitors and instructors and is also the coach and impetus behind Australian phenom Craig Jones' meteoric rise to the top grappling stages.
