I am a decent Akira player (who is really try'in to get better). I still can't really do the DLC or SPoD but I can do some decent float combos off of the shoulder ram and Yoho uppercut. Anyway my friend uses big J (for a very long time) and he has become very good with him (he can force you into getting thrown, like crazy). My problem is I CAN'T beat him with Akira, because he never blocks down so I can't get him with my shrm or anything else that would float him. I have also tried to condition him to block down but he won't because he knows I am almost powerless without my floating tools. So does anyone have any info or tactics on what I should do to fix this. And maybe some advice on how to do that DLC and SPoD on a PS2 controller. I can kind of do the DLC but the back check comes out like a half second after the elbow, it's not like on smooth motion (does that still count)? Thanks in advance for any help.
