The intensity of the moment was undeniable when he locked in that guillotine. The loud scream he let out made it clear that he was giving it his all.
Some viewers expressed their outrage at the situation, suggesting various retaliatory moves like kneeing to the groin, stomping the foot, or poking the eye. They believed that since the person didn’t release the submission when the opponent went limp, he deserved some form of retaliation.
The intensity of the situation made grappling seem like a risky endeavor when faced with a potentially life-threatening submission. In such cases, some argue that it’s necessary to do whatever it takes to defend oneself.
On the other hand, grappling is indeed an effective route for defending against a grappling technique. While some may resort to eye-poking to escape, experienced grapplers know how to maintain their submission even under such circumstances.
Critics also pointed out the flawed technique used in the guillotine. They suggested that if someone commits so firmly to a guillotine, it’s better to transition to the guard position for more leverage rather than keeping the action standing. However, others defended the standing approach, considering the risk of strikes in certain situations.
The one applying the guillotine explained that the opponent should have tapped, which is why he continued to hold the submission. When a submission is applied, it’s essential for the person caught in the hold to tap out to signal surrender and avoid potential injury.
As the video showcased, the opponent went out within a matter of seconds. When a submission is applied, it doesn’t take long for the oxygen-carrying blood to the brain to decrease, resulting in a loss of consciousness.
Even a poorly executed submission can be dangerous, illustrating the importance of safety and proper technique in martial arts. Regardless of the outcome, it serves as a reminder that combat sports require responsibility and respect for one’s opponents.
