It's Technique Tuesday #4 🛠 Let's take a look at Jon Jones submission over Cyril Gane at UFC 285

It wasn't completely obvious to the casual UFC fan but Jon Jones finished Cyril Gane off with a guillotine choke at UFC 285.

It wasn't a normal guillotine choke, he did it a bit differently.

Here's a cracking explanation video from Thomas Kincaid

The guillotine choke is a submission technique in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and other grappling martial arts that involves compressing an opponent's neck with the attacker's arm or arms while their head is trapped in a standing or ground position. It is named after the notorious 18th-century French execution device, as the choke is thought to resemble the mechanism of the guillotine.

The guillotine choke can be applied from various positions, including standing, kneeling, or on the ground. It can be executed with either an arm-in or an arm-out grip, and it can be a frontal or lateral choke. The choke is typically applied when an opponent shoots for a takedown or when they have their head exposed, and it involves the attacker wrapping their arm(s) around the opponent's neck and using their body weight to squeeze and apply pressure to the neck.

The guillotine choke can be a very effective submission technique when applied correctly, as it can cause the opponent to lose consciousness or submit due to the pain and pressure on their neck. However, it requires a good understanding of technique and timing to apply it effectively. If the choke is not applied correctly, the opponent may be able to escape or counter the technique.

It is important to note that the guillotine choke, like all submission techniques, should only be practiced under the supervision of a trained instructor and with proper safety precautions. Applying the technique without proper training or supervision can cause serious injury to the opponent.
