I did a search and couldn’t find an answer to this so I’m posting here.
Can you focus absorb and dash when the opponent attacks you with a meaty attack on wakeup? For example if a Ryu pokes me with a meaty crouching forward on wakeup, or Ibuki throws a kunai that will hit meaty, should I be able to focus absorb the attack and dash? I can’t seem to but I don’t know if this is just because I don’t have the timing down.
What about if a Ryu sweeps me then does a safe jump against me? Should I be able to focus absorb the attack on wakeup and backdash?
