I noticed that for landing blockstrings, you usually have to be pretty deep. So either you jumped in on them and they blocked and you continue a blockstring, or you focus attack them while they block and you dash in and do a blockstring (if they blocked), or you dash in whiel they are on the defensive and start a blockstring. sometimes i notice that if the opponent is really scared on wakeup to do anytihng, you can do a blockstring, but I like to do wakeup throw in these situations instead of blockstrings.
what are other good times to start blockstrings? they seem to require you to be extremely deep which makes them sort of situational.
i love mixing up the full blockstrings with few hits of blockstring-> walk forward throws and with few hits of blockstring-> walk forward standing roundhouse (i use bison) when i train them to think i’m going to throw at a certain point. but yeah, if a shoto is good at keeping me out on the ground, and b/c dp owns my jump in attempts where i can land blockstrings, i can’t seem to do many on them…
