    Does anyone know of a match or have a video "purple belt and above" where the fight ending submission is a guillotine choke? I have never seen a gi match above blue belt end with a guillotine, have any of you?

    Can't say I've seen it.

    May be inexperience talking, but at the higher levels it seems like it would be a very tough choke to "set up." By that I mean the typical ways to get it are a snap-down (easily defended from the feet), grabbing it after a terrible shot (higher-level competitors either have a decent shot, or know it's a weak point and don't do it), or off a failed hip bump sweep or kimura from guard where the opponent buries their head.

    I'd be interested to see a video pulling this off in gi competition.
