02UM Jhun Profile.png





  • cl.A/B/C are cancellable
  • cl.B chains into itself and cl.A
  • cl.D's hitbox is quite high and will whiff on small characters like Bao, Chin and Choi


  • s.A is whiff cancellable into specials and command normals
  • s.D has a very far range and moves Jhun slightly closer to the opponent
  • Jhun's stand normals all have decently far reaching horizontal hitboxes for poking
  • Jhun s.A works as a preemptive anti-hop tool


  • cr.A/B/C are cancellable
  • cr.B chains into itself, cr.A, cl.A and s.B
  • cr.D has good range for a sweep and decent startup
  • you can do an interesting trick by throwing out a cr.A and simultaneously entering the command for either A or B stance thus making a mini blockstring into a stance mixup


  • j.A is a horizontal strike during a neutral, hop or hyper hop, but during normal jump and super jump it takes on a downward angle that can crossup
  • j.B has a very acute vertical angle that would be a matchup based air to air
  • j.C has two neutral versions: at hop height Jhun does his flip kick and at normal height he does an angled kick. The hop height version controls aerial space really well
  • j.C in its forward and backward varieties is his flip kick version
  • j.D has two neutral versions at hop height it is a downward angled kick and at normal height it is an angled kick roughly the same space as his normal j.C
  • j.D has crossup properties that are hard to land on smaller characters


  • Jhun's blowback will whiff on crouching shorter & some medium characters like Chin, Leona, Vice, Bao, Angel and others, but not on similar characters such as Vanessa
  • j.CD has great horizontal hitbox


Handougeki - (close, b/f + C)

  • causes soft knockdown

Kai Senpuu - (close, b/f + D)

  • causes hard knockdown
  • throws the opponent all the way to the opposite corner

Command Moves

Soshuu Geki - (f + A, Hold for Soshuu Stance)

  • Jhun send out a far reaching kick that when held puts him in a stance

  • has some frames of stance recovery even if not held

Ryouko Geki - (f + B, Hold for Ryouko Stance)

  • Jhun strikes out a kick, turns his back to the screen and into a stance
  • hits mid
  • can combo into it, but not from it
  • has some frames of stance recovery even if not held

Ryuurou Shuu - (d + B, in the air)

  • Jhun lands a downward stomp on the opponents head
  • will send Jhun in opposite way horizontally. if you used it from neutral jump, he will keep neutral jump.
  • will send Jhun upward on both hit and block. you can control the height of following jump with down(low), neutral(mid), up(high) input.
  • is a overhead.
  • can cancel his air super from the hit
  • it has interesting crossup quality in that if hits as a crossup it doesn't bounce Jhun away, but keeps him right next to the opponent


  • note: you cannot throw, block, crouch or jump as normal in either stance and if you get hit it will knock you out of the stance. If you get hit in a stance it counts as a counter. Also Jhun adopts a hop-style dash when in stance.

  • this allows fast toggling between his two stances so you can utilize the move desired, such as his Evade move
  • you can seamlessly move between the stance indefinitely

Kirikae Dousa - (b/f+B and hold B for Ryouko stance)

  • Jhun whips out a little side kick that is an effective poke at long range and deception tool
  • can't combo into anything

Kirikae Kougeki - (A, hold for Soshuu Stance)

  • you can switch indefinitely or hold A to stay within Soshuu

Kirikae Dousa - (b/f+A, hold for Soshuu Stance)

  • Jhun stomps on the opponents knees and flips backward slightly
  • puts Jhun just within distance for his normal stance sweep
  • hits mid in ridiculous speed making it one of fastest ground overhead in the game, 10f.

Instant Stance Switch Tech, NMC

Whil you are in a stance move's recovery frames, holding opposite stance and C or D will switch your stance immediately. e.g : A stance D, hold BC or BD. B stance C, hold AC or AD.

Just pressing it will make you switch and use a move you pressed immediately. e.g : A stance, BC = switch to B stance and use C move.

With this technique, you can A stance D into B stance C to perform an unblock launcher. A stance D, wait until recovery, BC.

Learning this technique will allow your pressure to be much more fluid between stances.

Hidden Super Desperation Moves

Zankou Haik Geki - (qcb x 2 + AC)

  • Jhun taunts the opponent and creates a ring of energy around him
  • if the ring of energy hits it allows form Jhun to land a full combo or enough to switch into a stance
  • if the player decides uses it away from the opponent Jhun will create the ring of energy and it will stay on the stage for 6 full seconds. Jhun can leave and reenter the ring during this time.
  • If the opponent jumps in on this ring it causes 4 hits and a soft knockdown. This creates interesting protection for Jhun to fight from as he is essentially protect from any low.



  • cr. B, cr.A, f+B (14%)

Very basic combo to go into B stance.

  • cr.B, cr.B, cr.A, d~u+C (19%)

Knockdown combo, but not generally used, as it's better to threaten with B stance afterwards.

  • cl. C, f+A, qcfx2+K (40%)

Can't be done reliably (at all?) if started from a jump attack

  • B stance C, B stance u+C (18%)

Basic (and the only) combo Jhun can get from B stance midscreen.

  • cr.B, cr.A, f+B, BC, far D, qcfx2+K/BD (2 bars 40%/3 bars 60%)

Note that if you start this combo from a jump attack, you should remove the crouch B or you'll be out of range.


  • (qcb+A), A stance C, A stance u+C, A stance D or f+B (29%/28%)

29% with the Stance D ender, 28% if with f+B.

  • cr.B, cr.B, cr.A, d~u+C(2), (SC)qcfx2+K (2 bars, 43%)

Omit the two cr.B's if you're starting this combo from a jump attack.

  • B stance C, superjump d+B x6, j.CD/qcfx2+K

The infamous staircase combo. Very tight to land the initial stomp.

6 stomps are the ideal for damage and consistency, more than that will require frame perfect stomps. Could lead to an infinite if you have the precision.

If you stomp an odd number of times, Jhun will jump away from the opponent, screwing up the enders.

Hold up during the final stomp, then instantly press CD or delay a bit and do super.
