The Guillotine choke is an extremely popular submission in both Gi and NoGi. It is one of the first submissions many people learn and one of the most effective. There are a multitude of variations for the Guillotine! Some have different grips, hand positioning and set-ups. Some people prefer arm in Guillotines, some prefer the high elbow or “Marcelotine.”
2015 ADCC and IBJJF world champion Claudio Calasans, shows his favourite set ups for the guillotine choke in the GI. The guillotine is harder to place with the Gi because of the collar but Calasans shows some great details and set ups that make it just as effective.
This was during his seminar in Porto, Portugal.
