    Stop your training! If you've ever watched UFC you're now a skilled fighter like this guy!

    He grapples like a guy who learned by watching UFC fights.

      Did he actually choke him out, or just restrain him in a front headlock?

        Looks like just restraint him and took a bunch of selfies.

          That's BJJ ? Good thing he didn't pop the guys neck, would have been lawsuit time instead of hero time.

            I always figured that grappling was a little bit more theory-transferable than striking.
            I mean, if I read a book on punching it's not going to make me any faster or more accurate; whereas watching Karo Parisyan sure as hell helped me in the clinch.

            At the end of the day, I think just seeing a guillotine a few times is probably enough to show you how to do it against someone who's never been in such a choke before.

                I watched women's gymnastics all night, but when I tried to do a backflip I nearly broke my neck. Thanks for making me think it's possible, random osmosis guy.

                  Were you wearing a leotard and seguins? That's the key.

                      I think untrained people tend to put their head in danger of a guillotine when clinching if they've never been put in one before. So, its the other guy's screw up too. In a striking example, I'm sure an untrained boxing enthusiast would have a decent chance of knocking out a guy who holds his fists at waist level and sticks his chin out while windmilling.

                      Regarding the guillotine/front headlock, a lot of people intuitively apply it by taking the same side arm and wrapping it around the head, rather than using the other hand to pull the head under the opposite arm. The former is easily resisted and/or countered, and someone with a little experience will use the opportunity to take the back.

                        Untrained people can get a rudimentary idea of how to choke/neck hug/restrain other untrained people by watching MMA. Before he started training, Joe Lauzon used to choke out his friends in backyard wrestling just by imitating what he saw in the UFC videos he had. Hell, I killed my little brother back in the day with a standing guillotine I learned from Ken Shamrock's book.

                        Joint locks are another matter, however:

                          What actually happened in that video? My eyesight is kind of funny and the shaky cam really screws with it.

                            The dude with the dreads had him in a pro wrestling style arm wrench:

                              Ah thanks, I'll watch it again and look out for it.
