New Street Fighter Player


Let me just start off by saying that I am not new to fighting games and for the most part, I understand the mechanics of the game. With that said, I got this game about a week ago and I’ve been trying different characters. I’m taking a real liking to Ken and Akuma. I was just wondering if anyone had some tips to help improve my game because I am getting my ass handed to me online.

TL;DR Post stuff that would be useful for a beginning Ken and Akuma Street Fighter player.



Check out the FAQs in the Newbie Saikyo section and the Akuma and Ken character sub-sections for more info.
