Of course no good Yun is going to wakeup with normal kicks, but this guy may not know that. Everything I’m talking about below is referring to ex kicks.
I don’t know…I think it can be argued…of course with regards to life, bar, etc. If I’m going to pressure at a distance for wakeup ex kicks->lunge punch to be effective/possible, and he’s going to choose an offensive option on wakeup, in a lot of cases Yun can parry here while in range for 123GJ. Unless kicks into lunge punch is going to kill me (in which case it may be slightly easier to bait), I would much rather eat that option. Parry 123 GJ is going to take more damage, build the bar back as well, and have me in a much better pressure situation.
I’m saying “it doesn’t matter” as in it’s not something to worry about most of the time. I give Yun a lot more room if I start to give a fuck about him waking up with ex kicks - not to mention he’s probably risking a lot more life by doing ex kicks as opposed to even a wakeup parry. If he parries wrong, he’s eating what I’ve committed to; he guesses kicks wrong, and he eats whatever the hell I choose. If I’m worried about wakeup kicks and he doesn’t do it, he’s getting up for free.
I’m not saying your point is invalid, but (probably since I’m a Makoto player - though I do think this applies with more characters) I probably see this a bit differently overall. With Yun’s stamina, that damage (again unless you’re going to die) is minimal within the context of the round and the risk/reward from each side.
