There were a couple of points made which were technically incorrect, and I'm not sure if this was on intended in order to simplify the explanation, but just in case and/or if any new players really want to know:
Side Frame Bonus
The side frame bonus advantage is determined by the base damage of the attack. I think you mentioned that only Punches received a bonus of 2 frames from the side, while everything else got 3 frames. The way it works is:
base damage 14 or less: +2
base damage between 15 and 24: +3
base damage 25 or more: +6
Counter Hit Bonus
Similarly for the counter hit bonus, you mentioned it was based on the attack class (P, 2P, etc), when again it's based on damage of the attack being interrupted:
base damage 24 or less: 1.5x
base damage 25 or more: 1.75x
