Glacius and Sadira. Please help

Has anyone found solid ways to approach these characters as Sabrewulf? I'm just at a complete loss here. I don't have anyone to practice with to learn these matchups. The only thing I found to get glacius out of the air is cHK his full screen ice sword, witch isn't easy and requires good timing. Sadira I have no answer to.

Are these characters supposed to be tough matchups or are they just too good at keep away? Or is it that sabrewulfs just subpar at rushdown. Hell jago has a free way in with full screen wind kick, only punished by shadow moves, and has more frame traps. Plus he has good zoning.

I don't even think sabrewulf wins any matches, maybe orchid? Idk it's early but man, I've never had this much trouble against keep away with a "rushdown character"

Practice match-ups, it'll get better, also did you see NEC 14 KI top 8? Justin Wong won with Sabrewulf so you might pick up something from those games, Sabrewulf's pretty good man seems to me he goes at least even with the cast.

Yeah I saw it. I was amazed, I just can't block that good against sadira. Wish I had seen JWong against some glacius players to see how to play that match

Yeah man it's all match-up experience, when you fight your first high levels sadiras you get bodied but you keep playing you start adapting and eventually learn to deal with her bull, + she's not very safe on the ground so once you figure out what you can poke out of/dash you'll be set.

I play Glacius btw, I'm not that good though but if you want we can play sometime add Kinetic Orochi

LMAO! Not that good pssh, yeah ok : )
 
The problem most people have with sabrewulf against sadira is you cant rush her down like the rest of the cast since a good sadira will body you. You have to control the pace of the match be ready to combo break but at the same time watch out for shadow counters I use grabs to stop her from getting in. Use short combos that cant be broken so easily and most importantly be ready to antiair. Sadira is a major theart when she is in instinct mode Do Not Rush Her wait for meter to drain than combo punish. I feel this is a very difficult match for Sabrewulf and just because JWong beat Cd Jr and floe doesn't mean this is free matchup.
