A Guillotine Choke Counter Is A Must
The Standing Guillotine Choke can be a nasty submission that makes people get gun shy with their takedowns. Having a guillotine choke counter is an important tool to have if you plan on having a takedown oriented game.
Typically I’ve seen two common mistakes people make when they are coming in for a single leg or double leg takedown and get caught in a Guillotine Choke.
First is that they freeze. Instead of adjusting and making angles. They have a oh shit, deer in the headlights, moment and freeze up. Then they’re submitted.
The other mistake I see really often when stuck in a standing guillotine choke is that they continue to drive straight forward right into the person’s full guard. Which pretty much seals the deal for them.
I’ve done previous videos talking about head positioning and how important it is. You can check that video out here.
