Been having fun with oni, despite being ass at shotos in general - been trying to figure out what are the most basic yet effective setups i.e. blockstrings, ch setups, pressure strings etc with oni.
setup’s I’ve been (over)using:
tc1 = target combo 1: st-f.lp xx st.mp
tc2 = target combo 2: st-b.mp xx st.hp
setup 1 on medium cl.range:
cr.lk cr.lp (bait/continue blockstring/go for ch) tc1 xx lk swipe / hk swipe / hadou / ex-hadou / ex-swipe / mk stomp / ex-stomp
after lp swipe hit or ch go for another loop of cr.lp tc1 xx special, OR fadc cr.hp xx hk tatsu / ex-tatsu in corner st+f.hk / ultra 1/2
xvynx: after lp swipe blocked go for lk /ex-stomp to encourage opponent to keep blocking to setup ex/hk swipes
will use hk swipe occasionally
setup2 on close-cl.range:
cr.lk cr.lp (bait/continue blockstring/go for ch) cr.hp xx (as above)
very basic traps i know, but those setups coupled with good zoning and spacing, seem to get me by pretty well.
I’ve been tinkering with air-dash fwd + tatsu, and jumpin mp.airdash, crossup hk tatsu (hard to do consistently but never fails to hit ;)) but they seem gimmicky at best - anyone make decent use of them?
anyone have some suggestions to what else is good to use? / How do you keep the pressure on, as oni?
