    I have a question that might have been mentioned in older threads but I can't find it.
    I noticed that while I was fighting, I managed to backstaggered my opponent while he is fighting face to face with me.
    I was wondering what sort of condition that would make them backstaggered in that way ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Certain attacks deliberately turn you around.

    Lion's "bb++K"
    Lau's "bb+P"

    A major counter when back turned will back stagger.
    So you did a backstagger because you interupted the above moves.

    But I noticed that there is sometimes no struggling (moving joystick) involved if you get a "frontal" backstagger.
    It seems like the opponent cannot go anything about it.

    That might be due to the Major Counter stagger condition.

    If they were hit by a stagger move then they'd be able to struggle: ie:

    Lei's "ff+K"
    Jacky's "ff+K"

    So a Major Counter with a mid attack when BT cause a non-strugglable stagger.

    did the opponent end up facing backwards? Some moves stun the opponent and turn them around, like shun's stance b+P chop or jeffry's f,b+P.

    Or are you saying they were stumbling towards you, just like a normal stagger but instead of moving away, they move closer? Remember who you were playing?

    you may have interrupted a turn-away attack of his...
