Now, the Adon videos:

  1. The options select introduction to Adon.  Skip if you watched the video from the first Adon link in this page.
  2. A short video on advanced techniques for Adon.
  3. One of the more difficult things to do with Adon is instant air jaguar kicks, here is a beginners guide on what to do.
  4. Insightful commentary by TheoryFighter on the Gamerbee vs Infiltration finals at evo2012.

Words of wisdom:

  • Instant air jaguar kicks are different than ground jaguar kicks in that they can combo instead of break armor.
  • Jaguar Tooth is useful as a feint by using the light kick version to draw out dp’s and such.  Be careful though as many ults can punish a full screen jaguar tooth.
  • Ex Jaguar kick and  forward medium punch are both overheads.
  • Standing strong kick hits twice thus breaking focus attacks and any other attacks with armor.
  • Medium jaguar kicks hop over fireballs and hit opponents.
  • Ult 1 does the same thing and can hit most characters from a full screen away if done on reaction.
  • Know your spacing, whiffing a jaguar kick into a neutral jump means eating a free meaty combo.
