Is Fuerte a good newbie character?

Hey! So i’m basically new to fighting games and just picked up a copy of USFIV. El Fuerte really caught my attention when I was looking through cast. So I basically was wandering if Fuerte would be a good starter character for a newb like me? I do have a fightstick btw, other tips about Fuerte are welcome also.

Late answer but no. Fuerte is not a good character at all for starting off. You can’t learn the basic fundamentals of the game that well with a character like him.
