If you go online much with Street Fighter V, you will see an army of newcomers who have major difficulties with throws. You’ll also find some players that ride solely on throws, and will get frustrated when they run up against players who know how to tech them.

Gootecks covers both of these scenarios in his Cross Counter Training series. He teaches the importance of throws — and how to execute them, or map them to one button within Street Fighter V‘s menu — and also goes over how to tech throws, and how to use shimmies to mix up people who will mash techs out of your block strings.
