The purpose of this thread is to try to expand everyone?s knowledge of Ryu?s footsies game. In light of the recent posts on Sonic-hurricane I have decided to make this thread to see if we can get some more specific tactics to use in a match.
- all i have to say to start you guys off is to cr.MKxxhado. Know its range. Use it, abuse it, make people your bitch with it. You can win games with this alone. amd if your doing it right you should.
watch this whole match and realize the power of the cr.MKxxHado exhibit A: [media=youtube]_usIADlKRKM[/media]
- One of my favorite mix ups that I like to go for is to keep more advanced players guessing off my normal block strings. I picked this one up from daigo. My normal block string Is cr.LK,cr.LP,cr.LP,cr.MKxxhado, also this is applicable if you have shown your opponent you are VERY comfortable with cr.MKxxhado range.
To set this up initially you have to probe and find out what you opponent has been doing after the hado. If you notice that they generally don?t do much at all and jus teat the block string than you can pretty much skip this technique, however, if you are noticing your opponent going for a FADC through your hado you can begin to punish this.
Instead of finishing you block string with a hado you can choose not cancel the cr.MK and instead go for a solar plexus punch. If you guessed correctly and got wind of their habits you will catch them in their focus attack and will punish it with a pretty damaging combo. Use this to keep them on their toes and to keep them from trying to get fancy with you.

- Another one is a simple one to apply to your game. This one requires you to attack some tick throws here and there. See if your opponent is teching them well. Hopefully if your good enough you can tell if he is standing to tech or crouching OS.
During your regular tick throw block string condition them to tech a throw say after 2 jabs. Now what you do is after your 2 jabs back up a little bit and punish their OS/tech wiff with cr.MKxxhado. Very simply, very safe, and very effective at chipping away at their life. Also keeps them guessing about whether to tech or not and will probably net you a couple more tick throws than you would have gotten before.
