I seem to have the hardest time dealing with focus attacks on wakeup with Balrog and other characters with weak wakeup options. This really is a basic question, but can I headbutt to avoid this? I thought Rog’s headbutt was invincible during startup but I still seem to eat FA every time…so maybe my timing is just bad. Jumping just seems like kind of a loss as well because I get caught in the air.
Clearly I’m messing something up here but I can’t seem to get around this.
How do you deal with this on knockdowns where you can’t get up quickly?
