I’ve seen this a few times now on streams. Sweep or throw into knockdown, walk over, neutral jump, and either come down with hard kick/punch into combo, or land and cr. LK into combo.
It’s not a safe jump, and it’s not a specially timed meaty crossup- it just… looks like YOLO.
How exactly does this work? It’s very easy to reversal on wakeup, and a jump gives you all of this time to react to it. Blocking is the cautious thing to do, but a lot of people aren’t cautious.
Is it that if I do an empty jump, I can block right after and have it be safe (given a certain timing)? If so, is that option separate from empty jumping into cr. LK, or is it one and the same?
Is it that jump attack is the unsafe option, and empty jump low is the safe option, and I just mixup between the two? Or are they both unsafe to reversals?
What about crossups? I’ve tried jumping over and faking like I was going to do a crossup j. MK, but instead did nothing, landed, and went for cr. LK.
All I got was thrown for my troubles.
I don’t see how the jumping high-low mixup is supposed to work if the opponent is doing anything but blocking.
