Does anyone have any tips for doing the qcf+D-crouching A link? I can do it, but I would like to do it more consistently and I can´t find any way to improve my efficiency. If done in the corner, and started from jumpC, C, f+B, it seems you have to hit the jC quite high, cancel the C into f+B as fast as posible, and then cancel the f+B into qcf+D as fast as posible too, while trying to keep really close to the dummy all the time, but I can´t pull the combo even with 33% efficiency. Doing it at mid-screen or in the corner starting with C (no jump C) seems to need slightly diferent timing. Is there something I´m missing? Any tips? Thanx in advance.

No secrets. Just good ol' fashioned practice. Hit training mode and keep doing it over and over.

I wasn´t expecting any "magical" trick, just some advices. Of course, thanx, anyway.
Believe me when I say that I have been practicing for lots of hours, I was just hoping someone would have "mastered" this link or that there was some kind of "general advice" like to do the C,f+B, db-f+D.

Do people even use Takuma's EX Haohshikouken? It seems like it would be good for punishing projectiles or even as a follow up to his  ;d Hienshippukyaku.

Any tips/set ups on how to land Takuma's command grab? I usually throw out an EX version on wake-up, but other than that I haven't been very successful in landing his command grab.

I don't play Takuma but I usually get grabbed if they tick throw me using maybe j.D (or hop D) or so, and I forget to alternate guard. So you can probably try to experiment with using some tick throw setups but be aware that some players can read those setups.

I use it sometimes, but you shouldn´t rely very much on that move, the regular version is pretty crappy. It is another option to surprise the enemy, but nothing spectacular if you use it as a stand alone move.
It is incredibly usefull in all his combos, and that should be the main usage for it. Outside of combos...not recommended (only in ocations, as I mentioned earlier, to surprise the enemy).

As someone asked on our last vid on youtube (KOF XIII Combo Exhibition -Chapter one-), I´ll try to explain some tips for the qcf+D - crouching A link:
I´ve not found any 100% reliable method but it seems that if you start from jC (then C, f+B), the C must hit as close to the dummy as posible, and it must be canceled into f+B as soon as posible too. The f+b SEEMS like must be canceled just before it hits. Again, this is not 100% acurate.
If done with no jump before (just C, f+B, qcf+D, like after Takuma´s command grab) the timing seems to differ a bit. You must cancel C into f+B as fast as posible, but to cancel the f+B into qcf+D it seems you have to wait a little more than in the 1st example.
Again, this is not a 100% sure way to make the link work. I spent hours to record that combo.
I hope it helps.

When its done, can it be featured on Takuma's wiki here?
