So I thought it would be good to have a single thread where advanced Sagat strats could be discusses.
Sagat has ALOT of depth to his game and I thought it would be good for the Sagat community to really delve into his character.
Sagat wins tournies with really super solid basic play. I think that the true beast that lies within Sagat has yet to be unleashed.
The Emperor of Muay Thai has many tricks up his sleeve just waiting for someone to uncover them.
Talk about high level stuff here. Frame traps, mix-ups, Tiger shot lockdown patterns in various match-ups, baiting strategies, what normals of Sagat’s stuff the most used normals of other characters, his kara cancels, etc.
To start us off I have something I have been messing with as well as a question.
I have been fooling around with frame traps. Sagat’s low short leaves him at plus 3 on block. So of course that’s an easy set-up for a grab since a grab takes 2 frames to come out. You have to wait a split second though because you can’t grab during block stun so i you try to grab immediately the grab will whiff.
What other mix-ups do you think might be applicable after a blocked low short?
And my question was about a possible kara throw. Since Sagat can kara his step kicks does he have a kara throw off of them or a kara throw at all? I was just curious about this.
Ok, guys let’s get some good discussion going.
