Set her to do sai and teleport kick immediatelyLet me show you what I'm talking about.
I set the AI to random zoning to show sai is reactable and 100% guarantees a glow.
Kitana's zoning is really easily dealt with by Jade. On top of that, Jades d2 takes away the amplify mind game of the teleport.
I don't really know what you mean about being able to apply constant pressure. Her staggers, pokes, and throw game can be pretty good, but first she needs to get in which isn't as easy when her zoning game can't keep you on your toes.
