Starting in the turtle position, you already have one hook in. Your opponent isn’t defending the opposite side. It’s very common that your hand is going to come in on the same side as your body is.
Because your opponent won’t be defending the opposite side we are going to slice our hand in from the opposite side. So as we slice, you want to make sure that the blade is in the neck. We go through as deep as possible.
Our second hand is going to come from behind his armpit. So as you slice your front hand down around his neck your other hand is shooting up behind his armpit.
Grabbing the wrist and hand, in the traditional guillotine style grip. Making sure to connect the bicep to the neck.
As you sit back you’ll squeeze both for the choke and on his leg. It’s important to squeeze on the leg, if you’re loose with the grip on the leg he’ll lift his hips and it will loosen the choke.
That’s a very basic army guillotine from the turtle position when you have one hook and he’s defending the opposite side.
We hope that this step by step photo guide was helpful for this guillotine technique. If you’d like to see the video click below.
