Fundamentals – Fan Sweep, Guillotine, and Kimura
- Standing Guillotine Offense and Defense – The guillotine choke is a dangerous submission that can be employed from a variety of positions in BJJ. This week we will begin class by showing how to both attack and defend the guillotine from standing.
- Fan Sweep, Guillotine, Kimura – When on the bottom of the closed guard, begin by breaking the posture of your opponent. When they regain posture, sit up with them up for a fan sweep. If your opponent drives into you as you try to sweep, attack the guillotine. If they leave their arm exposed, attack the kimura.
