Chokes are an excellent way to incapacitate an attacker without causing significant injury. In this video, the instructor demonstrates several methods for securing a standing guillotine choke. These moves are also applicable for MMA, but it’s especially designed for street defense.
The techniques more or less involve trapping one arm in a clinch. From there, you can throw an elbow to the face or apply a shoulder lock as a setup for securing the choke.
Once you have the choke locked in, there are little things you can do to tighten your hold, such as pinning the attacker against a wall or getting the elbow of the non-choking arm over the attacker’s body.
