    I definitely think you need to jump in less. A lot less.

    For some reason, you didn't really get punished at all for your jump ins. Online, you can sometimes get away with it as it can be harder to react but I'd definitely stay grounded a lot more.

    The only other thing I'd say that stood out is that you quite often landed a cr.lk, cr.lp but then you didn't finish your combo so I'd definitely drill your hit confirming too.

    TLDR;

    Less jumping, better hit confirming.

    Nice mix-ups though.....

    Peace,

    G.

    thank you... I jump a lot against no good players... but I think I should stop jumping anyways just to be more solid.
    My hit confirming is due to online (I don't know why I fail so much online) and out of fit so I am not worry about it.

    If I play a good or very good player I'll put another video... I think it will be more interesting

    some of my matches, I am not in my best fit and these are easy fights but...





    this is just for the OS :D






    any piece of advice is welcome.

    I put two Adons because I really need to improve against him :(

    one thing i noticed in the cammy match in particular, is that you anti air with cr. hp. bad habit against cammy imo, you can eat big damage for that stuff because she can alter her timing with ex cannon strike in the air. i use mp/ex dp exclusively against her (or at all really, i think cr. hp is lacking as an anti air). worst case scenario you get a trade.

    and the jumping, if you really only do it against lesser opponents it's okay i guess... people online can't anti air for shit though and i sometimes abuse this as well to force myself in.

    .

    I don't use it too much the cr.lp antiair... just sometimes.

    I think that Ken only has a true AA against players with dive kicks and it is ex.srk... you can use st.mp sometimes though.

    mp AA fails sometimes too :S

    Good stuff against Daigo, dooki. Correct me if I'm wrong, I sensed some nervousness from you. Daigo put you in the corner alot [more like you backed yourself into the corner]. Toward the end you loosened up though. Nice counter hit, set-up with the standing close fierce.

    I don't think it's a good idea to just leave your number here or anywhere on the internet. It's safer to just get a Twitter and use the option to get text messages whenever someone tweets you or something like that.

    Besides that, good stuff reinvigorating Ken players to step their game up with your stellar results so far.

    Ehh I really didn't care since it's my fellow ken army members but you're right and if anyone would like to text me just inbox me your number and I will text you.

    Wow Dooki, really liked all your matches. Really solid. I learned a lot just from watching them and I've watched them all a couple of times already. I thought you played really well against Daigo too. Hope you took away as much as possible from it.

    Keep up the good work!!

    Now I'm off to try and find all of Kichi's fights on YouTube.

    Peace,

    I keep seeing Kichi going for this set up in the corner:

    F.Throw, dash fwd, whif c.LK, jump crossover (lk or hp)

    Does anyone else use this?  Is it unblockable or just super ambiguous?  Character specific?

    Thanks , I only slept for two hours that day after practicing all night with my team mates for tech against justin and madcatz team ... I played the beast two minutes after waking up in the venue ... I think I could have done better ... but I enjoyed so much non the less

    You guys I played MashDatDP since it's a bison is a bad matchup for ken.
    I asked Imagine4D to post it on this thread, would that be something you guys are interested in? I won 10-3
    I did throw out 200 DP's in one of the matches because of frustration (you will laugh because I still won that round aha) but yea overall I think I did pretty well.

    Hello fellow Ken mates! I just wanted to introduce myself to all of my peers. I'm a fellow Ken player obviously, I play Ken in every game he is in. I'd just like to say thank you all I've used these forums as guidance for quite some time now but never felt that I had much to contribute. But I plan to be a bigger part of the Ken army  from here on out. I'd really like to thank G77 his discoveries have been priceless also DRS Chris you've been a big inpiration been following you on streams and xbl for awhile now. Also banana ken lilsicx66 Endboss (personal friend of mine) and the Japanese ken's as well(doubt they ever pop in but oh well). Dooki I just became acqainted with you recently but really great job at the Kuwait tourney man. We'll that's enough ranting from me I play a lot on xbl considering I have little local competition besides my small group of friends so I would be happy to play any of you guys my GT is TV Daedae. Thanks again!

    First of all, I would like to welcome you to the forum. I think you'll agree that despite the general perception that Ken is an extremely scrubby character, most of the contributions here, in the Ken forums, are actually very grown up and constructive. I hope that you can maintain that and take the Ken army to even greater heights!!!

    I'm flattered by your post. I used to take my theory fighter very seriously and really enjoyed trying to find out as much as I possibly could about Ken. Unfortunately, I just don't play as much as I used to. Partly because there were less and less people playing online in my region and partly because I've been enjoying other titles and focusing more on my non internet based hobbies!!!

    My knowledge is now quite outdated and has been surpassed by quite a few guys in here. GTF did some awesome work on unblockable setups and these have been added to by many others as well...

    I still linger here in the forum like a bad smell though, so if you ever want to ask any questions then I'll always do my best to answer as promptly as I can...

    Peace,

    G.

    Ok, I am honestly really really wanting this ken army lobby to happen, I feel like I could help out a lot of my fellow ken players not only
    In the mirror match knowledge but just in general how to play ken. I would love to see people on this forum progress!
    Please hit me up when these lobbies are being created! DRS Chris3495 is my GT.

    You did pretty good, but if you would like my advice, I think you should use step kick more in the step kick range, it allows you to get in on Sagat but you have to be smart with it, use U2 to punish his fireball game and react to tiger knees.... Use safe jumps on gat to make him waste meter with a DP and it will let you get in and keep the pressure.

    thanks i have been playing ken since day 1 console release so i pretty much know the character inside out that being said the biggest thing stopping me is having absolutely no offline experience im attending my first tournament this weekend (RFD2 in amsterdam) its funny over 4 years and ken still keeps me learning new stuff

    did not use step kick too much due to the sagat players tendency to spam roundhouse which is why i used max range sweep more

    I got wrecked against BSIDA locally, man that jump in lk into bnb got me confused on which way to block. I tried to whiff cr. short against air tatsu then FADC, but he did the EX so I ate it. Tough Ken! Couple of things I realized I should've done like slide after I saw him lp shorying across the screen.
