When do I jump in on my opponent? I used to jump in all the time thinking it was my fastest way of getting close to my opponent. I’ve dropped the habit but now find myself too worried to jump in fear of giving up most of my defense.
The only times I find myself jumping in are for punishes when I feel safe in obvious situations like punish and/or dizzy situations. When else should I be jumping in? I try to jump in on wake up but usually always eat an anti-air/ex-move or opponent jumps/dashes back. It’s gotten to the point that I’ll just bait out dumb shit on wake up or do some safe sort of poke 'cause I know I’ll get reversaled or whatever.
Pretty stupid but I don’t know when to jump in. Help?
