Double and Single leg Drills

Does anyone know of any good Drills for working your double and single legs? My takedowns are meh from working shots, whenever I shoot in I leave my head on the outside and BAM choke city, I know in wreslting its fine because you don't worry about the choke at all, but its driving me nuts.

I lost my last fight from keeping my head on the outside and my last grappling match. any help is appreciated.

Not sure if this is helpful for you or not, but I found it useful. They have a few other videos as well.

Well im sure you know to bend at the knees and not bend your back. Lower your level and keep your chin tucked. Dont worry about getting kneed in the face, go low.

Im still a white belt and forget to tuck some times myself. But its been forever since I tapped to a guillotine on a TD. 10 minute drills of take downs only really sharpend my foot work and timing.

Going down to the knee and not bending your back is right, but for some reason people still think you should tuck your head down. When you go in for a shot your back should be straight and your head should be straight up like you're trying to look at the ceiling. This makes it much harder for your opponent to get around your neck. If they do get around your neck always dump them to the side and try to immediately pass to side control cross side and work on the arm to pop the head out.

If someone gets around your neck you also have other options. If you come in and your head goes off to your left (his right) and he catches you, come back up to your feet. From here throw your right arm over his left shoulder and throw your head straight up like you are looking at the ceiling, which should relieve some of the pressure from the choke. From this point use your left hand to attack the choking arm. Now you have some options...you can trip, turn out of the choke, etc...

I was taught the same thing about tucking my head when I first started doing BJJ. Later I was taught to shoot with my head up like I was looking to the ceiling. Since changing to shooting head up I have gotten choked a lot less and honestly don't really worry about the guillotine anymore because if the head is up high enough it's really hard for him to get his arm around your neck.

Another tip...

If you go in for a shot and the guy catches you in a guillotine and immediately drops and pulls guard on you, don't worry. Post up on both legs high and base on your head. I like to call this the tripod. You should be up high on your legs and pretty much standing on your head. This should relieve some of the pressure from the choke and allow you to attack his choking arm and peel the choke off.

elitemmagoer has a little shameless behaviour in the past
My advice as a 4 year HS wrestler is to step deep on your penetration step, and keep your head looking at the ceiling and drive your head hard against his hip to off balance him. as long as you keep your head on his hip he wont sink the choke in.

First I would just like to say, great screen name...

Honestly the Shot isn't my big deal I do better with Takedowns from the Clinch but one thing that I have done and seen work for others as well is to push thier Leg (the one that isn't the same side as the Guillotining Arm) to the side so that when their back hits the ground you are in Cross Body, they can't really Finish the Guillotine from there.
