Guillotine Choke Alternatives

Here’s some variations on the guillotine choke submission demonstrated on the Submission Master grappling dummy

First, you can create an opportunity to get the guillotine by pushing your opponents head to either side.

Then, if your opponent defends by pulling on your forearm to take of the pressure, you can transition into a triangle choke.

If you can’t cinch in the guillotine choke, you can release the grip and go to a stockade choke.

And finally, you can simply release the guillotine and go to either a kimura arm lock or a reversal (as in the video)

The Submission Master is available from

few basics you can do under side-control, for practicing with your Submission Master Grappling Dummy.

The first technique you can do involves shrimping your hips away from your opponentto put him in guard.

The next technique has you pushing behind your opponents tricep, forcing him to base out while you slide your hips back and put him into guard.

The third technique starts the same, but you bridge over your shoulder and come up to your knees.

The final technique starts with putting your leg over your opponents head as though going for an armbar, but ending with a brabo choke on your opponent.

Keep training!
