Time for another short list of things to do in training mode.
1- Learn how to DP crossup Psycho Crushers from Bison.
2- Learn to whiff punish the following moves:
Akuma chk (-9 on block but big pushback) and fhk (2nd hit whiffs on Ryu)
Ken chk (-6 on block but big pushback)
Gen’s smk (cannot block this, he gets free hands) and chk
Guile’s backfist (whiffs on crouching)
Dee Jay cmk
This is a large hole in my game. Whiff punishing. I realise I am very lousy at making my opponent whiff pokes. I tend to crouch block a lot, and do not dance at the right ranges. I tend to have a “block it” mentality but a lot of these moves are quite safe unless you make them whiff. I realise this footsie skill is very hard to learn however, and is what separates top player footsies from the scrubs like me.
3- Learn how to avoid Gen’s vertical wall dive where he comes down on top of your head.
4- Practice FA dash through, plink chp srk on all shotos cmk fireball. I never do this.
5- Practice using smk if I want to use fireball fadc combos midscreen.
6- Repractice dash/walk towards meaties with clk+clp, clp+chk option select sweep after successful DP or tatsu ender. Keep getting stuffed by mashed shorts because of bad timing.
7- Practice FA dash towards punish instead of holding the FA to try and get a crumble for moves like Hazanshu, Blanka’s chp, Balrog’s shk.
8- Practice delayed safe jump option select sweep on the appropriate characters like Guile.
9- Practice recognising the different Fei rekkas and punishes.
10- Practice SRK FADC off a single counterhit cmp.
That should do it for now, time for some grinding.
