    Double-leg takedown counter

    If someone attempts a double-leg takedown on me, what should I do? I was thinking about sprawling and getting him into a guillotine, but I'm unsure of what I'd want to do next. Hold onto the guillotine and knee his face instead of choking him out?

    P.S.: This is a self-defence situation - I don't go around picking fights. :Smile2:

    Do you do any MMA or BJJ training at all?
    If so, how much experience do you have with double legs?

    If you've never experienced a double leg take down and would like to answer your own question, I seriously suggest finding somewhere to train.
    Any suggestions anyone makes is useless unless you have the opportunity to train them.

    You pretty much answered your own question. Do it correctly and they'll land on their face. Since self defense is about protecting yourself and getting out of dangerous situations anything else like chokes or knees is optional and only needed if you need to hurt an attacker enough so they can't follow you when you get up and run.

    What he said.

    Also, sprawling is usually the right answer. Guillotine is fine, but there are many other options as well. You'll learn those when you go train.

    Why are you asking?
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    I'd advise against a guillotine as people tend to give up their underhooks too early for it and end up letting the guy get the takedown anyway.

    Instead of worrying about "this or that technique" you need to find a place to train. There is no single "cure all technique" for each situation. If you're realistically thinking about self defense there are some basics you need to understand. First you need to find a school. Next you need to make sure you practice against resisting opponents. The worst you do in your training is the best you can hope for in the real world. You can't practice a technique 10 or 20 times and think you "know" it. Do you have any martial arts background?

    These are the best responses so far. We can't help you shyun, until we know what your background and experience are. If you're a beginner, then the best advice is to find somewhere legitimate to train. If you're not, then we can discuss specific techniques.
    Shut the hell up and train.
