3s Akuma

I pretty much suck at 3s, but I have been playing it a lot as of late and I’m trying to get better at it. I messed around with every character and it seems like Akuma is my best match. I was just wondering if there is any must know stuff about him (please don’t tell me to go to the akuma strategy forums because nobody posts there and I haven’t found any solid information there). I already have his kara-throw down, but I’m having trouble knowing which situations to use it in when I’m actually playing. I can do basic ass combos like j.hk, cr.mk xx mk hurricane , dragon punch and I can combo into supers such as cr.mk xx hadoken xx SA I and cr.lk x3 xx SA I, so I’m not a complete idiot. I basically just need some help.
