Why you should play Yang

In order to play Yang you have to play very patiently. Look for your openings and punish very well. Yang may seem like a simple character. But he is not simple by any means. He is extremely reactionary. You have to be able to punish whiffs as you see them or you wont be able to play Yang effectively. Yang has really simple combos but has a really hard style to get a grasp to. Knowing combos is only half the battle. But thats where I will start first.

C. MK xx QCF FP x 3: This is your basic yang combo and your primary punisher when you dont have meter. Use this combo Often.

C. MK xx QCF any 2 punch buttons x 5: this is your primary punisher when you do have meter. This will more than likely be the combo you use the most. So use this combo wisely

Mp hp b, hp xx SA2: This combo is mainly used as a punisher. It does horrible damage but it does score a knockdown... use at your own will.

c lk x2 xx QCF any 2 punch buttons x 5: Nice way to hit confirm his ex tourouzans. Great for mix up game and for punishment. You can also just use one c lk on wake up to keep your opponents off of you. Use this often but watch out for meaties, if used on wake up.

C mk xx SA1: Nice punishement combo and also can be used at will. SA1 lleaves you at 1 frame advantage and leaves them in a massive blockstun. You also get a free mix up after wards due to the ammount of stun thats on the move after block. if you play SA1 make sure to use this combo.

Ill add more combos later
