Someone want to help me train?

I know some basic combos with Akuma and resets, which I can do perfectly in training mode but when it comes to online, I can’t seem to apply them.

I also lose constantly to players that I’m better than (I’m not good by any means, but I’m smart enough to “download” players but apparently I’m incapable of stopping them) and it’s just…disheartening best describes it.

I’m a late comer to fighters, I casually played other games but I want to start taking them seriously. I only used to play shooters and RTS, quickly becoming at least decent, however when it comes to fighters no matter what I do, I suck.

I don’t have the game on PS3 right now but I will go pick it up if any PS3 users are willing to help me improve.
