Okizeme is applying pressure to a downed opponent. This includes attacking them when they attempt to rise and keeping them downed. This thread is for character based strategies to combat the Rising Attack. Rising attacks are either: 1) mid 2) low Rising Attacks can be executed in the following positions: -Face Up -Face Down -Head towards -Head Away Generally speaking these are the properties of rising kicks. Some characters have different moves but for majority the following applies: Face Up: The rising attack will be a full-circular and a crescent attack -you cannot dodge the attack. -generally sabaki and reversals wont work either. Except for Aoi who can reverse crescent attacks. Face Down: The rising attack will be half-circular and reversable. -You can dodge both mid and low rising kick by walking/dodging towards the raised leg/knee. -When the opponent is knocked to the ground the "raised knee" is always the leading foot. This corresponds to the opponent's back prior to when they were knocked down. Note: If two attacks of same hit-level occur simultaneously and collide the move of greater damage power will win. A rising attack does 25 points of damage. So any move of greater power will defeat it.
