Hi! I’m Marc Zee from Arizona Center of
mixed martial arts, on behalf of expertvillage.com. Go, spar. Okay, what these guys are demonstrating
right here is called the guillotine choke. Guillotine choke is a very effective choke;
a quick choke that quickly subdues an opponent. The guillotine choke was also shown Hollywood
by Arnold Swarchenegger in a couple of his movies. What the guillotine choke does is
it cuts off the carotid artery, robbing the brain of blood. Alright, stop for a second.
Now, what the guillotine choke is if we’re locked up, he’s grabbing me, he’s attaching
me. What I’m doing is I’m snapping the head down, I’m running the blade of the
wrist across the throat. I’m grabbing onto my wrist with his head underneath my armpit.
My knee is forward; my leg is back. I’m bringing my hips forward to finish the choke.
If I start to choke, he taps letting it know that he’s about to go out. Again, the guillotine
choke…I’m going to put his hand down right here. What I’m doing is I’m using the
blade of the wrist. If I use the flat part of the wrist, the choke’s got no good. So
I’m going to use the blade of the wrist. It comes underneath the chin, across the throat.
I grab onto the blade of the wrist, I lean back with my hips forward, and finish the
choke. Now, there are variations of the guillotine choke. The guillotine choke is a blood choke;
it cuts off the blood to the brain. Now, for some reason, sometimes somebody would be down
and you can’t get under the chin. The variation on the guillotine choke is what I’m going
to use is a cross face. Notice how I’m turning his chin to the side. Okay, what that does
is it transfers the pressure to his spine. What I’m going to do is I’m just going
to pat him on the back right here, grab onto the wrist, and lean back. That turns it from
a blood choke into something that we actually break the spine or the neck. The first is
the guillotine choke. I’m going to snap the head down, come across, grab the wrist,
and lean into it. Now, for some reason if I snap the head down, I don’t get underneath
the chin, I cross face. I turn his face to the side so he’s facing you. Pat him on
the shoulder; grab my fingers over my wrist, lean back as I would a choke, then you have
a deadly combination. Thank you very much.
