    The key is getting tight around the neck first. Too many people get a half way decent head and arm lock and jump to guard. Secure the choke and if you want jump to guard to add pressure. You should be able to tap him from the top if you do it right.

    its a lot harder to get the guillotine with the arm in. you need to make sure theres absolutely no space and its super tight.

    poor angle, too much space... assuming you're hands are mechanically correct

    looks like you were in half-guard which is a pretty hard position to finish a guillotine.

    all good advice so far, get a really tight grip first, drive your hips in and crunch to the side and bring your elbows down and your wrists up.
