Every woman should know some basic self-defense techniques, especially something that allows you to choke out an attacker whilst in guard position and where the attacker might have managed to get into a dominant position on top of you.

Check some further details on this choke below and watch the video above from kwonkicker, you can subscribe to their YouTube channel here

The guillotine choke, also known as Mae Hadaka Jime in judo, is a chokehold in martial arts and wrestling applied from in front of the opponent. The choke involves using the arms to encircle the opponent's neck in a fashion similar to a guillotine.

Love this, thanks for the share! So easy to do this, basic stuff you would learn at an self defence class but so effective
