All right guys. Now we're going to go over the mckenzietine which is a variation invented by some McKenzie guy who was in the OC and it's very, very innovative. It just shows how Jujitsu evolves and what we think doesn't work actually does work very well.

Now the regular guillotine grip that we were talking about before was a I make a fist and I grab my fist and I do this. Okay? Now for some people, if you have a lack of flexibility, you can only go so far so you can go like this and keep pushing, or some people do it like this. Okay?
