Meaty Sweep Opportunities

adon

#1

After messing in training mode looking for sweep setups, I noticed that Close Standing Strong has a few meaty frames at the end of it that allow it to link into sweep. I feel like it’s pretty situational, but I figured I’d post about it on here to see what you guys think. Here are a couple of setups I figured out for it keep in mind that you have to be really careful, because the timing is odd and it whiffs easily. feel free to add on:

Back Throw -> Dash -> Cl. St. Strong ->Sweep
Back Throw -> Jump Foward -> Cl. St. Strong -> Sweep
Forward Throw -> Dash twice -> Cl. St. Strong -> Sweep
BnB x RJ FADC -> Cl. St. Roundhouse reset -> Cl. St MP -> Sweep (Corner specific)

oh shit I gotta try this

I dunno if this was new or not but instead of strong I used cl.mk and got the same result. This find is nice man 'preciate it ya for sharing it.


#3

nice find but what frame does it leave you after they blocked your st strong? is it meaty st strong or no? if not then i know it leaves -4 on block which isnt safe.

I’m guessing it also loses to mash SRK <_<

SimpliztiK: I’m not entirely sure how safe it is on block, but using cl. st. MP as a meaty does cut a few of the recovery frames on the attack. I feel like it’s closer to -2. Also, As Negro pointed out, cl. st. MK also works with this setup as well, although it gives less time to confirm the sweep.

Kikimaru: It does, unfortunately. This setup’s used more as a disruptive mixup with a good read. The good news is that it’ll trade with some weaker DP’s, such as Viper’s HK thunder knuckle and Ryu’s jab DP

I’d rather just max distance sweep if I really need a meaty. Not sure why I would do a meaty anyway, especially one that doesn’t hit low. Don’t get me wrong the combo is nice but there’s much better things to do in all the setups you listed.
