Challenge - Dhalsim has very good zoning and control. Getting in is not easy as he can push back on the ground and air games. He is also famous for teleport mix up games making it hard for a girl with weak counters.
Focus - Be patient. When he does his buttons, if he is getting predictable you can push a button to tag him. If he does his yoga flame you can react to dash forward quickly while staying safe. Look for an opportunity to close the gap.
Strike - Wingless can take him out of the air. Jab if he comes for a teleport mixup without extra pressure. Dhalsim does not have a strong wake up game either, so when he’s down don’t let him get up. A ground teleport can beat a normal attack / throw wake up, however a ground teleport is not going to open you up like an instant air teleport.
OP: Alright this guy is tough for Mika on several levels. Please what do you do against this champ?
I have found that I can mash s.mk at the beginning of the round to stuff an instant long kick from him, but then it’s all down hill… I don’t even get far enough to look at slapping teleports. If I try to walk forward I get his long punch, if I try to jump I get AA, even if I jumped his long kick… His anti air game is strong, and I just can’t walk towards him… I’m not even getting to mix up zone.
What do you do to get in? What can you punish?
I don’t think I’ve beaten a single sim over 1000 rank.
