My execution has always been bad and I’m starting to think that the way I use the buttons on the stick is to blame. You here lots about holding the the joystick but nothing about using the buttons.
I rest the base of my palm on the surface with my thumb on lk and my next 3 fingers across the punches. To hit mk I bend my thumb under and squish my pinky over to hit hk. It’s fine normally but I’ve been having trouble with mp > mk links and with techniques like mk hands.
When I see people play at tournaments they seem to hover their hand at all times mostly playing without using their thumb by the looks of things. Would I be better off trying to adopt this style?
