So... You want to learn Sakura? - (Online 1vs1s for Newbie Sak Players)

“Urgh… I need more training!” - Sakura Kasugano :tup:

Everyone learns differently and on a forum this large it can be tricky to find all the answers or discover amazing combos etc. Alot of the original posts in threads have not been updated since over a year ago and going through 700 posts is not something anybody really wants to do.

We have Team Sakura, yes. But some newbies may be put off joining thinking that they won’t stand a chance or learn anything.

My idea is for somewhat experienced Sakura players who are willing to help a new person in a short 1vs1 for a few minutes to jot their name down in here.
Likewise, if you are new to Sakura and think you’d benefit being shown in a 1vs1 how to deal with certain things jot your name down here too.

I certainly learned alot more when people started adding me to their list. See my thread when I was new:
http://shoryuken.com/f271/thank-you-sakura-users-srk-203125/

I’ll make 2 lists. Sakuras providing help and Sakuras in need of help.

The format should go like this:

Providing/Requesting help:
**PSN/XBL: **
Strengths:
Weaknesses:
Specific things to learn/work on:
Availability:
Best Method of contact:
Alt characters:

Suggestions
If you match up with someone I’d advise you make a chat room or use mics or whatever to make it easier to communicate. PMs back and forth are long and tedious imo.
