We all know about safe jumps - this thread is for sharing information about their less talked-about cousin, the non-jumping safe meaty.
Obviously these are much more complex than safe jumps. With a safe jump, you only need to consider the timing of your jump and the startup of your opponent's reversal, but with non-jumping moves, you also have to consider spacing and the speed and hitboxes of both your meaty and your opponent's reversal.
Unfortunately, beyond knowing they exist in some form, I don't know much about what moves can be used as safe meaties. I've heard that Boxer's low jab can be used as one, and both Gief's low short and Claw's low forward seem to work for me on occasion, but presumably with all the different factors involved it's far more complex than that.
Can anyone shed some light on these?
