Guillotine Choke

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. The technique is either a type of tracheal compression restraint (wind choke) that prevents air flow to the lungs, or a blood choke depending on how it is applied. When executed from the ground, the person applying it will try to control the opponent by the hips, for instance using a closed guard. This is done to prevent the opponent from escaping the hold, and to be able to apply additional pressure by extending the hips. It's a very effective maneuver when performed correctly.

The arm is wrapped around the trachea and the hands are clasped. Pressure is applied upwards to restrict blood flow to the head, causing unconsciousness.

This technique can cause unconsciousness and even death, if done correctly. It is taught in various grappling martial arts and is considered universal to grappling, including Jujutsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, as well as in mixed martial arts competition and exists as one of the most instinctive chokes possible. In Danzan Ryu, it is also taught as a neck crank.
