Maybe my mind game might not be all to overwhelming yet, but I’d just like to hear what goes on in this situation.
I land an EX tatsu, walk up jab for the reset, dash under cause I want to start another combo with a cr.short, but then I eat a shoryu right as they land (by the way are perfectly timed cr.shorts able to beat out a reversal shoryu?). I can rectify that by just baiting the shoryu and punishing right after, but it just doesn’t have the same amount of venom that a horribly long sakura combo string possesses. Of course I can train an opponent to stop DPing the jab reset/dash under with enough baits/punishments, but it seems so long winded.
I’m sure it’s cause I have a lack of experience, but if anyone can enlighten me on what to do to instill fear into an opponent earlier in a match and just make it easier to subject him to sakura’s shenanagans I’d really appreciate it. Just some moves, ideas, or concepts that you’ve come across to make opponents play sakura’s game and not their own.
Sorry about this post being everywhere, I just reread it and it’s making less sense the more I do. I just hope somebody can read through this and maybe clarify WTF I’m talking about.
