Yamazaki A Groove

yamazaki

#1

I read most of the posts in yamazaki threads, but i still dont get how to do the A groove grab combo with yamazaki. The one that you grab infinitely(until the groove ends) and then ends with a grab super. Is there a trick or a special timing for it?

I always do it once, then i can connect the next grabs when he’s on the floor. but i ve seen in videos that it is plausible to do it.

Might you please tell me the secret behind that /
?
Thanks

I am very curious as to how to fight a character like A-Yamazaki.
He apparently has quirky setups all over the place. I don’t have time to dissect this stuff but the very idea of fighting this character is somewhat sobering.
