I know I shouldn't stick my head out, but got any further advice ? Maybe some videos to watch ?

Sounds like you might be going in for shots with your head down (instead try chin tucked and keep the forehead up.

As far as escaping, that'll only work if it's not fully sunk in. If a guys got it sunk in w good technique, you're pretty much toast. The best defense to a guillotine is to not get caught in it in the first place...good luck!
