ATP Iron Fist 101 – Lesson 2

by Rip

Aris has put up Lesson 2 of his Tekken tutorial series – Iron Fist 101. In this brief writeup he discusses ways to approach learning a character and dealing with large movesets. Check it out here

A common problem for new Tekken players when playing against human opponents is understanding how your character’s move list is applied in game. Having access to such a large number of moves can make move selection very difficult. The first solution to this problem is to watch matches featuring well known players of your character. When you watch these matches, look specifically for the moves that are being used the most. For now, you don’t need to think about how or when these moves are being used. Simply focus on which moves are usable and abusable at a high level and take note of these.
