    A combo?

    Sounds like you were doing it too late. Kneeing over rising sweeps does work, and when done correctly should leave you ample time to low throw, elbow, SPoD, or whatever against your opponent.

    I'd have to favour hopping (d,uf) instead of kneeing though. If you're hit out of the knee (say, by a high rising attack) you'll cop the extra counter damage, but it'll just be a normal hit if you're hopping.

    for me this is one of those things that *seems* to be
    something that it is not. When I discovered kneeing over
    low risers I thought it was amazing and then got
    discouraged over the rising frequency of people being
    able to mash out of my lowthrow attempt. I no longer
    feel it is something that is dependent on being done
    correctly.

    It is a technique that is practically useless over
    here unless we catch each other sleeping (which
    happends). How do we get out of it? We mash on
    dem dere buttons. and we beat the throw.

    'course that just sets up some new games.

    thoughts? Experiences?

    rising attacks have _insane_ recovery by themselves, ie if they whiff. i've found the only way to throw or attack people after whiffed rising attacks is if they just stand there.
    i'm not sure how much they changed the rising and rising attack system in tb over ob, but like you i rarely see or do knee->low throw anymore. even more rare is kickflips interrupting low rising attacks, something i loved to do in ob but just can't seem to do in tb. although clem was doing it at t2k....
