Jay-1andONLY1 aka Jay of the Storm sent us this Hwa Jai tutorial/combo video explaining and showcasing a few practical but highly damaging optimal combos! Here is a quote from the description section of the video:
“I put this together detailing the correct combos to do with Hwa in most situations for optimal damage and meter building. Includes the correct way to do his 100% death combos with minimal supers. I skipped over the basic no-drive combos as I think they are self-explanatory.”
Practice these in training mode and try them out in battle!
