Similar to a rear naked choke the guillotine will have your opponent tapping or passing out on the floor or while standing up.
- When you see the back of the opponents head, have one arm around the neck. Your bicep should be at the side of the opponents neck and your forearm should be at the throat of the opponent.
- Have your free hand grabbing hold of your other wrist and begin to squeeze upwards. To secure this submission go to the ground in full guard (where your legs are wrapped around the opponents waist).
Triangle choke hold submission. This is one of many MMA submissions you will use to defend yourself if you’re on the floor in full guard.
- You will begin to try and control your opponents wrist. Once you grabbed hold of both wrist push them towards your opponents lower stomach.
- Open your legs and secure one leg on your opponents shoulder and hold this position with your other leg. Raise your hips to lock this position.
- Control the opponents head by using both of your hands and pushing his head down. Quickly open up a leg and place it on the opponents hip; leave your leg there. Shift your hip to apply your calf muscle in the back of the opponents neck.
- Lock this position by lifting your other leg that was on opponents hip so that your foot is underneath your knee. Begin to pull the opponents neck down towards your stomach until your opponent taps out.
