I use Makoto and find it difficult to get on the inside on Ryu w/o being punished. Does anyone have any tips that may help me out?
I would recommend you ask on the Makoto character specific forum, they’ll probably give you the best advice as far as specific matchups go. I don’t main Makoto so I can’t give you advice on how to get in w/ her. However, once you do get in, I would recommend trying to bait out shoryukens and punishing them. This will make them respect your mixup game and help you stay inside once you get there. Hope this helps.
