    Heya everyone. I'm training with Lion and am having trouble understanding when to properly use Lion's Sabaki. I've read both the Sabaki and Lion Dojo guides, but I'm curious as to whether or not it simply takes precidence to HP, HK, ME, and MK? It seems everytime I use it, the animation takes too long and my opponent scores an easy hit...any advice on how or when to use it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: Lion's Sabaki Attack

    VF4 Lion Meteor Punch strings. The mantis sabaki counter-attack.
    d,d/b,b+P or 214P , when it connects, it crumples, this new move has a (HP/HK, elbow, sidekick) sabaki that can interrupt too. Effects animate against any and all high attacks, sidekicks or elbows. Opponents stagger and backstep. A few suggestions from <font color=black>The Brotherhood of Lion</font color=black> Remember, it is a counter-attack.
    The best times to counter a blocked move with use of 214P (counter attack guide):
    3K(df+K. this is Lion's "Bullet Kick)->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P
    66K->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P
    3P->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P

    6PP(f+P,P)->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P
    66P->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P
    43P(back,down forward plus Punch)->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P

    6K+G->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)->214P
    1K+G->(when your enemy successfully defends move...)-> G->214P

    2+P+K+G (d+P+K+G)for an instant roll into screen and 8+P+K+G -> 214P

    thx to <font color=red>xaxak</font color=red> of The <font color=white>No Mercy Club</font color=white> This should be useful to your experimentation with Lion's counter hit. d,db,b+P=214P

    Lion's Meteor Punch is best when he is disadvantaged.

    Especially when he is -2 to -5 frames.

    There's no point doing a sabaki move when you have the initiative. If you have the initiative then there really isn't going to an attack coming your way for you to sabaki.

    Lion still gets a KD combo when it hits... <shrug> There are always other options.

    Yes, I suppose its a good move for that purpose to get the Stomach KD.

    Don't forget to enter those throw escapes after this move is blocked. In version C the second punch can be interrupted by a throw.
