not sure if its a new discovery..but i always thought Kage's rolling towards/from opponent...gives him a crounching status. today, was playing Akira when kage started to roll towards me and as his animation came into effect, i did a df+P+G(reverrse body check). and as if by teleportation(a very rough one), kage was thrown. so my conclusion is that, while rolling, kage is a standing non-defender, which is why Akira was able to throw him. any opinions on this?
