So… While watching evo this year my girl was inspired to learn how to play. Actually it was more along the lines of her watching the womens invitational and saying I could do that. Long story short, she has been bugging me to teach her how to play.
I have started her out on my TE with an octo gate, I know mistake, but I am going to change it back to the square to help teach her execution.
So I am posting this to get some tips on how to approach teaching someone that has not played fighting games before. I think I have some basic concepts, but I am willing to take some advice.
Here is what I know so far.
1: PATIENCE. I know that it can get frustrating teaching someone, especially when I was that person many many years ago.
2: Start slow: The basics are SO important. Basic Movement, special and super moves etc.
3: Repititon: I am trying to practice with her for at least an hour a day and have her doing moves from both sides of the screen.
If anyone else has input on this I am definitely open to it. Hopefully this will all pay off and if there is a womens event at evo next year she’ll make there.
