I’ve been a little flustered recently, playing against a lot of Yun and Yang players that constantly abuse the dive kick move to keep me from doing anything. It seems that when they get within sweep range, they set me up so that they will trap me in the corner and start doing dive kicks. Once that happens, they mix it up with either another dive kick, tick into throw or other character-specific stuff (Yun’s jab-short-strong-shoulder ram into Genei-Jin, Yang’s tick into Rekkas).
The only thing I can really do against Yun/Yang players is to hopefully knock them down and then try to mix up attacks on wake up to confuse them (because of their lack of quick anti-air moves). But once they get a handle on things again, I’m usually forced to play at their pace and become extremely defensive. I have a difficult time controlling the offensive tempo in these match-ups. I’m also forced to use Ibuki’s SA2 (Yoroi-Doushi), due to the ineffectiveness of her SA1 and EX moves on the twins. I also can’t do the advancing standing jabs, which is an aggressive option I use a lot.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m sure all of you Ibuki players share my pain.
