How to Do a 10-Finger Guillotine MMA Submission

Learn how to do a 10-finger guillotine MMA submission from Team Radical MMA head coach Rene Dreifuss in this Howcast video.

All right guys, now we’re going to go over a ten-finger guillotine, so a variation of the guillotine technique that’s a little bit more intricate in its details. All right. Chad has me in the double leg takeout position. I sprawl. I’m like this. Now, the grip is this grip, grabbing your hands and making this motion, coming back, almost as if you’re holding a football, right, or some sort of soccer ball or some ball. Going like this, arms bent, and cupping into yourself, okay? So I’m here, sprawled. Grab the chin, bring the head to my center, cup my hand, elbows in, drive my weight into his head, and chop backwards this way. One more time. I sprawl. I grab his chin – I call that the chin strap. Head inside, grab my hand, and finish.

One little detail is do not grab this way. You see how I’m doubling up on my hand? Grab this way so most of your hand is not covered. This will make sure that it fits in this gap, and you hit his trachea and drive in. Last time. And that’s the ten finger guillotine.
