I’ve been waiting for the Option-select.com Hakan tutorial for quite a while now. While not strictly an Option-select production (hit up their site for an clarification), this tutorial by Low Tier Entertainment is still a pretty comprehensive guide to all the basics of Hakan play.
To be honest, I’ve been neglecting my Hakan for quite a while now to focus on my Ryu for tournament play. Now that BAM is over, maybe it’s time to oil up a little once again. This video has definitely recharged my Hakan batteries. For example, I still have trouble nailing Hakan’s crossups consistently. But with this tutorial here, I can watch the video of the crossup over and over and try to match it to what I’m doing in the training room to help me get the timing down.
Bonus entertainment video!
