Fuck you; fight me.
Digging deep in the Kenshi subforum has revealed no sight of this. Please, ask away!

I'd say just go for the unblockable setup, or just F3 2, F2 2 B2. Personally, I don't see the advantage of F3xxTKS, save to do something different on the screen.

I only ask because the down slash hits overhead and people block the forward 3 low, I wasn't sure if that was good for opening them up in moderation. Thanks for your input :).

I primarily use those strings you mentioned and of course forward 2,2, back 1 into my bnb of choice. I still have Kenshi as a main till Sunday and am competing in the new mains event, so we'll see how that goes, maybe I'll get a match recorded to post.

Teleflurry - High, will not hit crouching opponents
RK- High, hits crouching opponents
SC - High, hits crouching opponents
TKS - Mid

So it's only the downslash I can't d3 with Jade then.
If I understood what you were saying correctly... The downslash, RK, and SC will blow up an attempted d3. A d3 will avoid a Teleflurry, but when you're in the footsies range, Kenshi will (normally) not be throwing out a Teleflurry.

D3 goes under highs that hit crouch. Even some mids :)

Yeah I'm proving people that Jade can go toe to toe with Kenshi. He's no different than the rest of the cast and he's free to jips because of his height. His ranged game is a mixup of overhead and straight moves, just need to figure him out.
What's his fastest option upclose?

I'll keep my personal opinion out of this, and just answer the questions to the best of my ability. ;)

His d1 is 6 frames, with a 7 frame d3, and a 8 frame upclose SC.

1. Why is there no Kenshi general discussion thread?

2. Are Kenshi's aware that after an air breaker you can otg the opponent with a SC?
