Hey everyone, thought I’d contribute to this forum. The other day I was watching Haneyama and noticed he liked to jump in after exlegs, whether it be from a c.short or a s.rh combo. Figured that it was a safe jump on all characters without a 3f reversal (except for Adon, because of his retarded tech get up).
So, the safe jump set up is your choice of EXlegs combo. Immediately jump-in with roundhouse. On some characters the roundhouse whiffs, but it still is a safe jump.
At first it’s hard to get the RH to hit on some characters, but the trick is to do the RH as close to the ground as you can. It should hit very, very close to the ground. So, here’s the characters the RH hits on and is a safe jump if they reversal with something.
Roundhouse Hits: Akuma**, C Viper, Chun, Dan, DeeJay, Dudley, Fuerte, Gen, Gouken*, Ibuki, Bison (Dictator), Rose
Roundhouse Whiffs: Abel, Boxer, Blanka, Cammy, Cody, Dhalsim, Honda, Fei Long, Guile, Guy, Hakan, Juri, Makoto, Rufus, T Hawk, Vega, Zangief,
No safe jump after EXlegs: Adon, Ken, Ryu
*Gouken has his counter, so although the RH hits and is safe against all his other moves, his counter can beat the RH, so empty jumping immediately after EXlegs is the preferred safe jump.
**Not sure why but hpsrk hits Chun if she decides to jump-in RH. So you can safe jump Akuma after exlegs by immediately empty jumping after the EXlegs combo. But if Akuma has Ultra, you will get grabbed, so be warned.
I hope this makes sense for everyone. LMK if you have any questions!
