I play Sakura every now and then. The best advice I have is not to get knocked down against Fuerte in the first place, hahaha.
She is very limited with “good” options to avoid the tostada (or anything on wake up really). Back dash is good, but the Fuerte can always change his timing to screw with your wake up back dash. Make sure you wait till you see him hit the air, back dash, punish. FA absorb then backdash/forward dash is probably the way to go, it will get you out of it and allow you to punish if you dash the correct way. LP srk is no good if they time it right, it has no invincibility and a pretty slow startup (a 6 frame window is pretty easy to exploit). Anticipating the direction, block and punish would be another good one. I think you can low mk xx srk to punish on block, and if not then you can definitely sweep. Crouching HP will trade at best for the most part.
Since we’re just talking about avoiding splashes I won’t get into the rest of the match up, but pray that he doesn’t actually learn how to use all of those mix up options if you’re having trouble with just the splashes. Sakura has a rough time period with this match up, so if you face a good Fuerte, might wanna try another character.
Side note: I am also from HNL (Hawai’i Kai area). I really need to get back there one of these days. :sad:
