If you’ve watched top-level tournament play for almost any fighting game — especially Tekken — you’ll have heard the term ‘”okizeme.” Often shortened to just “oki,” it is the art of pressuring your opponent’s wake-up to force them into an unfavorable position. In order to teach newer players what to do following a knockdown, as well as how to defend against certain forms of oki, rooflemonger has created an okizeme crash course for Street Fighter V.
Starting with a basic explanation of okizeme, rooflemonger goes onto explain how meaty attacks works, common mixups following a knockdown, how to perform a throw loop, and a quick primer on frame killing. It’s just over 20 minutes of useful information, so it helps to have Street Fighter V open at the same time to test out the things rooflemonger mentions. While this guide won’t turn you into an instant oki master, it should prepare you for the next time you’re knocked down in the corner.
