A  Look Into Twister – Or as Wrestlers call it: Guillotine

Twister is a long known submission lock. The devastating crank was among the first spotted in amateur wrestling – there it was called a guillotine. It was developed in the 1920s by Cornell 1928 NCAA champion Ralph Leander Lupton. In fact Cornell’s hall of fame cites him as inventor of the move.

In the grappling world it’s called Twister and has been taught at length by Eddie Bravo in his 10th planet jiu-jitsu system.

Recently Fight to win CEO Seth Daniels shared his own brief but insightful take on the technique:
