I second Honda, and I actually never spent much time learning his advanced stuff - I basically watched Mike Ross! I think he is certainly easier to learn than my main, Makoto anyway haha. Here’s my advice:
> Get lp xx HHS down quick, just practice the piano motion over and over. Remember you have a few options to follow it; st.hk, HHS, EX HHS or even Super.
> Doing nothing once you have the life lead is fine. (Of course, you’re doing SOMETHING, namely watching them and trying to read them/make them impatient )
> Your footspeed is pretty good. You may be surprised at how effective simply walking up to your opponent and command grabbing them is. Obviously don’t count on this, and you should not do it until you have an idea of their tendencies. It’s great for stuffing people that are shy to press buttons though :3
> j.mk is your best cross-up, and you can do basically anything if it hits.
> j.lp is good for setting up a command grab.
> st.hk hits low, so it’s great for when they’re trying to walk up to you. It’s fast too.
> jab headbutt is gdlk. Honestly, when they’re in range you can just throw it out - it’s totally safe on block. There are tons of times I’ve caught people out this way.
> nj.hp is outstanding. Remember that you can steer the direction you go in the air, it took me a while to realise that!
