What is guillotine choke?

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.

Famous quotes containing the words choke and/or guillotine:

    Most modern reproducers of life, even including the camera, really repudiate it. We gulp down evil, choke at good.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    There’s no such thing as life; or if there is,
    It is faster than the weather, faster than
    Any character. It is more than any scene:
    Of the guillotine or of any glamorous hanging.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
