Well… no I don’t really. This is a bit embarrassing and I feel a bit foolish for having to ask to point out what I imagine might appear to be very obvious to many, but I guess this is what separates my low level skill from those above me.
I basically want to know if I can find examples of footsies in all matches. I’m sure I often miss them, unless pointed out (actually, even when pointed out a la The Footsies Handbook, I have to watch a video several times to pick out the referred to moment). But I’m guessing maybe not, maybe not even in the ‘high level’ (high PP/BP) casuals you might find on YogaFlame’s channel. Sometimes/oftentimes it just looks like a crazy read to me or a gamble that paid off.
What about jumping around cross ups at close range, does that count as footsies? It’s it’s Chaper 9, element 29/30 (http://sonichurricane.com/?p=1231). I can appreciate that it is, but when I see some players jumping around like there’s no tomorrow, I can’t help but feel that isn’t footsies in the purest sense, it’s the player just going ham, hoping for the best and trying to open the opponent up.
When I’ve been looking for footsies, I’ve focused my attention on top level players who I know use footsies, for example Daigo, Momochi, Alex Valle. That way, I can at least narrow my search and concentrate to try and find these ‘moments’.
