Newbie needing help!

Hi, first off I am new to shroyuken and fighting games in general so please bare with me. I played ultimate for some time but I am still very new to this genre. But what I am trying to get to is I need help with akuma bad. I have no clue how to play him or this game if someone can run some endless matchs with me and coach I very much appreciate it, I have no one else to play with and I watched tons of videos but they do not help. I play xbox and my gt is Aequitas xo and I do have a mic. Also 2 side notes if this is the wrong section please let me know and is SFxT any good with the 2013 update? Thank you in advance.
