Ryu has seen a decrease in effectiveness in season 2 of Street Fighter V. As such, it’s important for Ryu players to try to find anything that can give them an advantage!

One way for Ryu to gain such an advantage over his opponents is using the knockdown from his EX Hadouken to set up meaty hits on the opponent’s wakeup. In their latest video, NurseLee focuses on these setups utilizing the EX Hadouken. Specifically, the setups in the video below are designed to work on opponents who try to quick rise out of the EX fireball’s knockdown, as a double dash following it gives Ryu just the right timing to get the meaty hit in.
