    Hey guys. I have really been working on my guilloteen recently, and the subtle details that can make or break a successful one are astounding. Any thoughts or observations from your experience?

    If I am not at least 95% sure I am going to get it, I don't bother gassing my arms. I like to almost look backwards as I extend my hips. I find I get the tap faster.

    Just for the heads up, it's guillotine.

    depends if you have an arm in or not.

    I prefer the no arm version and focus on the set up and arm position. You can get them without wrapping both legs

    there have been a few really good threads lately on the choke. one had a ton of youtube videos and discussions. another was made this week with an article written by a Grappling forum regular for an MMA site.

    The most important thing to remember is that once you get good (ie catch a few guys more than once) replace the 'guill' with your own name.
    I think the Zenoteen sounds pretty badass so you're good to go my friend.
