Ryu in thirty days! Or your money back!
Jumping backwards if for sissies. Ryu is no sissy. Stand your ground.
If they jump at you, use s.Hk to punish them.
Fireballs are your best friend. Always try to use the hcf+p to maintain an attack (and you know, you might actually land a few)
Doesn’t matter what groove you’re on
Dragon punches are a great way to get hurt if you don’t know how to use them. I suggest you start with basic dp.lp. The damage is the same but it’s not so blaringly obvious if you miss.
Against parry and JD folks hurricane kick is your best friend. Second only to j.mp
learn to use his hop kick (f.mk) this is a great way to stay in peoples face.
cr.mk xx hurricane kick. Don’t use a HK hurricane though, with a mk you can cross over and combo from there.
His crossover attack isn’t great (I suck with it) but j.mk xx c.mk xx hurricane. This is a great way to stay on your opponent without staying too still.
