Ok sorry, I forgot to mention one little thing. Here’s the correct way to do the kara SAI and s.lk xx SAI.
:d: :df: :r: (return to neutral*):lk: :d: :df: :r: :lp:
*The reason you need to return to neutral, is because you need to be canceling her standing short, not her toward and short. By doing it the way I posted before you are ignoring the fact that you need to cancel neutral and will most probably be doing it with toward and short instead. Sorry about that.
Yeah, the timing’s not as strict as you think when trying to kara her SAI. As long as you return to neutral properly and continue the last qcf the super will activate. You can do it as slow as you can activate the super its self, it’s quite lenient. Obviously once you get more concistant at doing it, you will be able to do it at faster levels, but it’s lenient enough to be concidered a good starter kara.
Her kara-karakusa is quite different, the timing is extremely tight. To me, it has to be almost instantanious. I still have trouble doing it on a stick, it’s pretty tough to do. If you’re not doing it, chances are you’re not doing it fast enough. Just as soon as you get that standing short out you want to be all the way round ready to press a kick button; straight away!
