Hi guys, i was wondering if anyone could help out a bit in the matchup Dan vs Balrog. Yes I seriously play Dan,and this matchup has been very bad for me, mostly due to balrogs damn jabs.
as you may or may not know cr jab beats pretty much everything dan has, and after a blocked dankuu which is where most Dan’s start their mix up game, cr.jab stuffs all options. it beats another normal (cept st.mp which only works close) it stuffs any version of dankuu, it beats grab, if dan backdashes balrog has enough time to headbutt while he runs away, and it ussually allows balrog to block the reversal.
Aside from that, any other tips?? Im also having trouble with footsies, as dan’s st mp, mk, and gadouken dont cut it versus balrog. And i also tried using focus more to beat rush punches, but then i get hit by torpedo. Can torpedo rush punch be punished on block? Please respond, thanks boxers.
