The Guillotine choke is a classic maneuver that even inexperienced grapplers can apply very early in their career. This makes it a powerful move for beginners. That said, many athletes ignore the intricacies that makes the Guillotine inescapable! The classic Guillotine is a great way to finish but lacks the control of the Arm-In Guillotine where you control more of your opponent’s body. This slight adjustment can make your Guillotine game much more effective and allow you more options of attack, this is where The Arm-In Guillotine Choke comes in!

Ricardo teaches you how to successfully apply the Arm-In variation of the Guillotine with a sniper like precision. If you have ever done a traditional Guillotine you know that it has to be DEEP otherwise your opponent's head will slip out. Almeida teaches you to lock on the Arm-In Guillotine from a multitude of positions that will help you keep control over your opponent. Once you have the Arm-In Guillotine locked on you leave your opponent very little options of escape, and IF they are able to you will have further options of attack including sweeps to the top position.

The Arm-In Guillotine Choke is the perfect series for ANY grappler looking to become more effective with a submission system that doesn’t require extreme strength or athleticism.
