Going to Evo, want advice



Hey guys the name is Bootson and i recently got into the community on here and would really appreciate some advice.

I got Street fighter IV since i played the series as a kid and long story short me and my friend are now going to play competitively at Evo 2012. I was hoping for some advice from the other Ken players here on SRK on anything and everything that can help.

The main characters i have trouble with are Seth, Yun (If i’m not careful), and any Shoto fighter besides Sakura. Plus Cammy seems to give me a bit of trouble and i can’t fight el Fuerte seriously because he makes me laugh XD.

My combo ability is…decent and my friend tells me my execution is terrible. I have a terrible jumping habit i’m slowly breaking but i was mainly wondering if anybody could help me get in for a Ken flowchart Shoryu (don’t judge me).

my main link is Jumping HK > crouching MK > (EX)tatsu > ?

not to sound noobish but i would appreciate your guys’ help for next week!


You can’t really learn much in one week… I guess just learn cr.lk, cr.lp, SRK and cr.lk, cr.lp, cr.mk, EX-Tatsu. Besides that, learn to get comfortable.


i learn quick, that i’m confident about, but the main thing i’m worried is i only get training against CPU, i played 1 high-level Ryu and got pummeled, i guess…the main thing i would really like to know the secret to is how to handle a hado keep-away, it annoys the crap out of me and i don’t know what to do about it

oh and also i use Ultra 1 XD
