Online play is so bad its hard to find good videos of matches. :confused:

Cross Counter episode with Mike Ross using Kano


Kano is the shit

So I started using Kano yesterday. Man I really did his air canon ball lol. So awesome for zoning, baiting and punishing.


Good shit. I’m gonna need to work on that 40% corner combo. the most I’ve gotten was 39%

Recorded a Kano vid recently! Basic practical BNB combos and more. Enjoy!

i Just started playing MK a couple days ago. and im still trying to decide on who to main. My first character ever in Mk9 was kano, because i like playing someone who isin’t played and someone who isn’t really considered top tier.

Do you guys think Kano if learned well enough, could compete for majors?
What are some weaknesses to kano and what are some basic starting pointers to keep in mind when first learning kano and MK9 in general.
