Help the newb!

Well, I’m not quite a real newb, but I’m definitely new to this particular game. Anywho, I’ve taken up the task of learning Vice, and I need some help. She’s the first grappling character I’ve played in a 2d fighter (aside from Potemkin, who’s incredibly different), and I need help learning how to connect consistently with her throws/pressure an opponent with her, as well as getting some basics down. At the moment, I’m playing with C-Groove, as it’s familar and allows me to build bars for other characters. Any help would be appreciated.
