I see Pyrolee and KO do this alot:
On opponents wake up, do close st. mp that whiffs then cancel into command throw. It always seems to work like a charm when they do it, but whenever i use it, i just get thrown or something. Am i doing something wrong/missing something here? What is the strategy or “point” of this technique? Only thing i can think of is that the st. strong will cause the opponent to react with a block on wakeup, then you can zenpou them while they’re blocking.
