Introduction

In a Nutshell:

A zoner/footsies character much like Ryu/Ken, but can control if his fireballs can be anti air or low to the ground.


Pros:
-Good at building meter
-Sagat's Ground and High Tiger Cannon are great at catching whiffed attacks due to the fast projectile speed.
-Great damage output and health. One of few that are possibly viable of being played solo on Ratio 4
-Has some nice long reaching normals.


Cons:
-Slow move speed
-Big hitboxes make him prone to instant overheads and being caught by far reaching normals if you overextend.
-Some attacks have quite a bit of startup and aren't abuseable.
-Requires to know when is a safe time to throw projectiles low or high to avoid them being jumped/ducked over to avoid being punished.


I want to introduce some terms (we always should start off with this).

Forward = F/f, Backward = B/b, Up = U/u, Down = D/d

Light punch = LP (Jab Punch), Medium Punch = MP (Strong Punch), Hard punch = HP (Fierce Punch), Light kick = LK (Short Kick), Medium Kick = MK (Forward Kick), Hard kick = HK (Roundhouse Kick)

Any Punch = AP, Any Kick = AK

QCF - d,df,f (Hadoken/Tiger shot movement), QCB - d,db,b (Hurricane Kick movement), DP - f,df,f (Dragon punch/Tiger Uppercut movement)
