I Gotta Problem Fellas!!
 
Lately in training, everytime i go for the shoot, ive been getting caught in a guillotine..Maybe not everytime but it happens alot, and it sucks cuz I either have to tap, or use all my energy to get out of it..Ive only been training bjj for like 3 months, so my ground game is basic..Im not terrible on the ground by any means, but Ive taking boxing for 4 years than kickboxing for 3..So Im def alot better on my feet..But im really tryin to be more well rounded, but this keeps happening when i shoot, so lately ive been avoiding it, and i dont wanna do that anymore..So if anybody else has had this problem, or has some advice id love to hear it

we'll seing how ive won all my fights on the ground and have done wrestling/submission wrestling for 6 years im pretty good at it.

The best way to avoid this is don't lead with your head as much, also start with shooting for a single leg then switch to a double once u gain control. Also don't be afraid to back out, if he sprawls before your all the way in and you don't even have a leg, twist your hips and back out.

Also when you go for a single leg take down start by shooting with one of your hands (should be the one lined up with his farthest leg). Keep it up around your chin therefor they can't counter ko you and they also can't get a clean choke.

If you have any other questions let me know, also let me know how it works out for ya.

WHat are we talking about? bjj or mma? (not that it makes much of a difference anyway.)
What shot are you shooting that you are getting caught on? I don't see how you can get caught to well if you simply shoot a single with your head on the inside of the leg.... ( you might want to consider learning a low single. basically just drop your level fire in at their shin and hit with your shoulder knocking them over)

When you shoot it, balance your neck by keeping it straight up. Try not to shoot in with your head into the person's stomach.

Also, if you want... You can just let the person take the guilloitine. Tuck your chin into your chest, and after they struggle to tap you out for about 15-20 seconds, pass their guard.

Might work.

I think this happens to me all the time cuz im training with guys alot bigger than me..im like 5'10 200..and my main training partner is like 6'3 245...So what happens is I try to stand there and strike with him, but i start to get picked apart..So thats when i shoot and he always seems to get me in a guillotine, but im not in his guard, im usually still on my feet..i think its so easy cuz he has alot of leverage on me..When im training with guys my own size it doesnt happen nearly as much..Do u think his size has has alot to do with it?

Definitley. Size has a lot to do with it, but it is a bit reckless to get caught with a guilloutine when standing up.

Size does make a difference but I started training in BJJ for like a month now and I'm 5'7 225lbs. My main partner is my friend he is 6'0 240lbs. We have switched partners on occasion and I find it a lot better to train with some one bigger. I agree with SpitFire, go for a single leg then double up when you have control. I also have my first BJJ match on the 22nd. :thumbsup:
