How do you do makoto's ground tsurugi?


#1

I remember Justin Wong saying you just tigerknee that move. I have no idea what that mean.


#2

You can either do :d::db::l::uf::k: which I have found tough to do with the Tsurugi, or do :uf::d::db::l::k:.

I’ve found it easiest to do :uf::r::df::d::db::l::k:. Just start at up or up/f and do almost a whole circle around to back.


#3

Back in the older versions of SF2, Sagat’s tiger knee motion was:d::df::r::uf::k:.

This term is now used to say do the motion before jumping. Hit up forward after doing the motion, then hit the button to do the command.

I haven’t messed around with Makoto in super yet, so anything more particular than that I can’t help you with.


#4

Personally I’ve only TK’d a tsurugi once. I just jump and do it really fast manually. i’m not sure why this move in particular is so hard to TK


#5

There’s something about sf4 that makes tiger kneeing hard. Maybe the jumps are slower. But yeah, you can just jump and do it quickly.

It’s not a ground move, it’s just an air move down immediately after you jump.
