I have a question about block strings. With certain characters like Sakura, it seems like there's nothing I can do, like if I do anything but just block, I get blown up. It seems to me that if I block, like they should be negative and I should have some option, but it seems like certain characters, that's not the case? Like my friend's Abel, He does this like pretty much constantly, like as soon as he's close enough to throw an attack, I will either get hit or counter, but if I block I am like stuck blocking and it seems like he can just keep me there blocking normals until he command grabs with his dirty mixup.
It seems like I should be able to mash legs in block stun to get out of this but if I press buttons I get blown up? I get so pissed I'll start pushing him across the screen with jabs (I used to do this in sf2 with st mp, then tick throw when people start fighting dirty) trying to give him a feel for this crap, but Abel's damage makes it not work very well, like he can buffer tornado throw and that's done. I'm like at a loss, not being able to zone this character out, and i'm taking massive damage anytime he ensnares me with a blocked normal. Like I can only win with insane pressure of my own, but usually that gets ultra'd. Any insight as to how to deal with this is greatly appreciated.

Hey guys, forgive me for being lazy, little short on time and didn't get a chance to search the forums. I needed help generally with getting in with Chun. For example defensive shootos keep me out with fireballs and focus absorb my hyzanshu when I'm in range, or dp by floaty jump in. I could focus cancel absorb the fireballs and poke, but typically I get punished because my friend tends to focus when I start getting close and punishes my pokes or huzanshus. Only time I get in is if I have a good read on the fireball and hyzanshu or ex hyzanshu a focus. Could you guys give me some tips or links? Much thanks!

Sup guys; I'm new here and was interested in playing as Chun-li. What are the most important things for a beginner Chun-li to get down? What does she have in terms of simple blockstrings / frame traps?
