I’m not sure what prompted the internet’s most prolific Ken content creator for Street Fighter V, World Warrior FGC, to look into Ryu suddenly. But judging by the lockdown potential these easy to hit-confirm combos have, it’s good that he did:
Medium DP allows you to meaty most wake-up options after a quick-rise, including 3-frame normals. It also gives good damage and sets up an easy confirm for both V-Trigger and Super — allowing Ryu to stun some characters in as few as two guesses.
