i use many types of denjin set-ups. it just depends on what you think will work and how much stun they already have. i’ve pretty much broken it up into 3 categories:
- combo cancel to denjin
basically, any combo that cancels into denjin… like C.MK -> SRK or S.HP -> SRK
i prefer to use light shoryus since anything more will screw you over if it’s block. honestly though, i don’t cancel into denjin… if i hit, then i go into denjin when i land and still build enough power to stun them. i find it to be safer this way. this also works for a light tatsu, but as “kof4life” was saying, this would be a great tactic against dudley, urien, or hugo.
- sweep + denjin on wake-up
one of my favorites to throw in the mix. you gotta make sure they’re already pretty full on stun though since you won’t have much time to build. this is more of a tactical close range set-up and will definitely catch them off-guard.
- backthrow + fierce hadou cancel to denjin
this one makes me laugh when i do it. they’ll either block on wake-up and take the full denjin, or try to parry and get off-time. and if they DO parry the whole thing, you’ve got some time to jump over there and beat them down.
i’ve tried the highblade kick to f.hadou > denjin and i didn’t really like it. maybe i just need to play around with it more.
