Not sure if that notation is even correct or clear, but the basic idea is that when I jab and they block (or hit), I usually use c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lk:.
I’ve seen c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:mp: Gohadoken (:lp:) recommended, but the gohadoken doesn’t actually combo, right?
I’ve also seen c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lp: c.:lk: c.:hk:. They’re both similar to what I’m doing, and I sometimes throw out a c.:hk: sweep after my five hits, but it’s not part of the block string, although I rarely get punished throwing it. (And it does get me a sweep knock down sometimes.)
The reason I like string I’m using is that I’ve gotten pretty good at the timing and spacing to know how many c.:lp:s to throw before c.:lk:, and it follows the KISS methodology that helps me not get in trouble due to execution issues.
Anyway, my question is: Are there any compelling reasons to change to a different block string? I’d like to know more about what weakness the string I’m using has, and what strengths other strings have.
(Sorry for the poor notation if the above is not clear. I’ve read a lot of things about SFIV, but haven’t asked anything like this on SRK before now.)
