My recent ranked matches made me want to try different strategies. I want to, in particular, try more defensive approaches to my game, so I'd like to know who you think has the best reversals, counters, and parries.
I am presently looking at King, because it was King players who made me sweat so much with their reversal play. It takes learning most popular strings for his players, but once they're on it, literally any kick and right punch can be returned to sender. His throws can also pin you to the ground for good, giving him a chance to treat you with oki.
In short, I'm almost certain about picking King as a secondary for the defensive play, but I'll be glad if you change my mind
