The title is probably a bit misleading, because I’m not talking about regular hit confirming in a combo. I read somewhere that the reason you see guys like Cantona and Itabashi wiffing seemingly random cr.lps with Gief is because you can buffer an EX Green Hand into one so that it only comes out if the jab connects. I’ve worked with it a bit it training and can’t get it consistently - plus it’s difficult to tell when I’m whiffing it if it would have come out on connect. Does anyone know 1) the exact inputs for this technique? Or if it is somewhere else, kindly drop me a link? and 2) wouldn’t this be more effective with cr.lk, since it hits low and does 10 more damage?
What I’ve been trying to do is this:
:db:, :df: + :lk:, :d:, :df: +:2p:
Is it just my execution? Because sometimes it will connect and not Green Hand - which only costs me damage, but sometimes the GH comes out without the kick connecting…and that’s punishment waiting to happen.
