How do I stop being thrown?


#1

I know you can counter it with a throw, but how do I stop/counter someone that jams on the punch or kick and then throw? I was fighting a Ken with Cody and countering his moves, so he would manage to find a way in on me and then jam on the jab and short buttons, then throw me. Rince, repeat. I tried countering with a throw, but that just left me open for a combo.
