lighter middle weights, with 3 for clsoed stance and 4 for open
stance. After the combo you are in defensive style, so you can
mixup your okizeme options. Against characters other than those
mentioned above, combo 7 in open stance and combo 8 in closed
stance. However, if you get a counter hit on the opponent when they
are crouching the float height is not very high, so they may not
connect. In that instance, you can remove the standing or go
for combo 9, changing the combos on the fly. After the +
there are many characters on whom the standing will whiff, so
in this instance use combo 5. However, against Aoi and Lion
depending on the hit conditions it won't connect, and depending on
the character the fourth hit tends to whiff,. In this case, combo 8
without the standing can be relied upon. After the
+ against up to Brad combo 8 in open stance and combo
8 in closed stance can be portioned off. Heavier than that you can
try the combos without the standing , but on characters heavier

requirements to remember, connecting in open stance on all except

normal hit you are -1, so overall 23 is a little better. In terms
of possible damage, you can get a + during the stagger of
24, which makes it the best damage if you can connect it all.
