Need help with OS Sweep

ryu

#1

So I’ve been trying to improve my game by incorporating this nice OS… but I can’t seem to get it down! I can only get it on record maybe 1 out of 20 tries with doing c.lk, c.lk~c.hk, and a little bit more successful with c.lp, c.lp~c.hk. Is there any trick to get the timing down? Or do I need to just keep doing it over and over until I can figure it out?


#2

This is how I do it lp, lp+hk. That’s it. If the lp hits lp will come out and if the lp whiffs hk will come out.


#3

ummm i’m not sure.I guess just make sure you are hitting the buttons at the same time,but that is all I can think of.


#4

So you do c.lk, c.lk+c.hk instead of kind of plinking lk~hk?


#5

yes!


#6

Yeah thats how you do it.


#7

I do lp, lp+hk, lp, and then plink hk with cr.mk. You don’t have to plink with cr.mk but that’s what I do. Don’t use lk since it recovers slower and it’s harder to combo after if it hits since you have to delay the lp+hk more. If you use lp it allows your sweep or lp to come out faster if the first lp whiffs. I don’t know if this is clear tell me if you need me to rephrase it lol.


#8

do you do the lp after the lp+hk in case they don’t back dash and you some how get a hit on them with the lp and then combo into sweep?


#9

Yea, but the important parts are the first two inputs the lp then lp + lk u can do whatever u want after that but i do another lp so i can confirm what to do if it hits or if they block it

I use 2 method:

1: c.lk, c.lk+c.mk+c.hk, c.lp You get an OS sweep vs back dash , a block string c.lk, c.lk, c.lp vs block or you can confirm if open gard.

2: c.lk, c.lp+c.hk , this method you get less push back and a quicker hit confirm and opponent still has to block low. Its less natural

than method 1. also possible do c.lk+c.lp , c.lp+c.hk to have an extra OS tech and somehow it could be more natural.
