Hey guys, here’s something I noticed awhile ago in DC training mode…
I generally tend to block first on wakeup, so I have a problem with Ken players (others, but it’s mainly them) who throw right as I get up. I went into parry training and recorded a dummy doing this, to see just how many solutions there are to this.
For the hell of it, I decided to use close s.strong as I got up. To my surprise, it actually beat the throw! I kept recording the dummy doing this, and no matter how well I timed his throw, I was still able to beat it with the close strong.
Am I missing something here, or is this actually a legit tactic?
P.S. Something else I learned from that training session: Don’t backdash when you’re being pressured in the corner. He doesn’t seem to be invincible or airborne at any point during it, as I was never able to make throws whiff with it.
