Hey so ive been hammering xbl with Ken and i really like him, im not some combo wizard so a simple shoto is fine with me and i win with just better zoning and footsies and very simple mixups.
I tend to go for kara throws and ambiguous jump ins with m. kick, i mean this works welk if the opponent is crouching or if it lands in front when it really looked like it was going behind but to me this seems a bit basic and it might work in the first round but after that i feel like i tend to go into patterns. I get the feeling that no matter what i do the opponent just always seems to guess right, they either block my jump in and my blockstring, if i go to throw them they either tech or reversal me etc.
so i was wondering what are some other mixups that are a bit trickier to use with Ken, for example what could i do in this situation. i sweep the opponent and i just walk up to him, now he thinks im gonna throw so he mashes throw, now i have to throw now to tech it or i get thrown, are there any other things i can do in this situation for people who think im gonna go for a throw? Also what are some good baiting techniques and frame ttraps ken has and just general better mixups. I also never really use focus attack, how do you get into practicing focus cos i always get jabbed out of it i just cant get the right time down to use a focus. Also tatsus, i never really use em unless its an ex air to air, i really want to get soem practice in with crossd up tatsus, but do i use the light and medium versions or is it only the ex?
all help appreciated but all in all i think Ken is an awesome character very solid and good fundementals.
