The Japanese Necktie with Lachlan Giles
The various necktie submissions have a bit of mystique to them. Maybe it’s the names, or perhaps how brutal they are. I remember being submitted in competition with a Japanese necktie, and feeling that if I didn’t tap, my neck was literally going to break. After holding out for as long as I could, I was forced to give up the tap.

At the time, I had not seen this technique before and was now compelled to look into how the necktie submissions are used. After gaining some knowledge, I became more aware of the dangers of these techniques and also began to try them once in a while. I’m a huge fan of the Darce choke, and the Japanese necktie is a close cousin, especially when you your arms are not long enough to secure a traditional Darce.
In this video Lachlan Giles demonstrates a variation of the Japanese necktie. He shows us the connection to the guillotine and the Darce and how we can use it as option in combination. Take a look!
Giles begins in a half guard underhook scenario. He starts by blocking his partner’s hip so that he can’t achieve an incredibly deep underhook. With the under-hook shallow, Giles has an opportunity to wrap the head in the style of a guillotine, and drive his partner down to his side. Giles decides it’s a good time to go for the necktie option when his partner is doing a good job of defending the guillotine choking arm. Giles then threads his top arm through in the style of a Darce, but his arms don’t have the length here to connect for a traditional Darce choke.
