    Jean's strength comes from being in a fuzzyable disadvantage after many of his strings, charge moves, superior range, and 66p setups.

    As any other character is, from nitaku your best choice is your characters fastest CH launcher or a throw.
    However, Jean's case is somewhat different. Because of the threat of [6][6][P], it is usually the best option to use along with throws.
    From +2: [6][P] is the best option. At 14 frames it will beat all [2][P]'s from your opponents.
    From +3: [4][K] is very useful.
    From +4 to +5: Start using [6][6][P]
    From +6: [6][6][P] or throws

    To beat an opponents LazyTE, jean has [4][6][P][+][K] guard break available to him
