N - Groove Haohmaru and speed

Does anybody here have any tips on using N-groove Haohmaru?

Also, we all know that Haohmaru is slow, but powerful. What do you guys do to counteract that? I tend to keep myself away and then do my moves once I am “ready.” After I do those moves, I back away again as soon as possible to avoid getting hit.

personally, i just use jumping mp, d+mp, s mp, far hp.

thats a lot of guard crush, and its all fast enough that its not too punishable.

mp, haohmaru’s most underrated button lol.
