Nice. Just curious as to where you heard BHTK used?

Might wanna add Command Unblockable, GCFS, and note that CD is sometimes listed as blow off or blown off. vj.x =  vertical jump.

It's a newer term that Japanese players use for writing up combos for Joe in KOF XIII on the BBS/wiki

Will do, if anyone writes down a word and the definition I'll add it to the first post immediately

Are Command Unblockables and Proximity Unblockables the same thing?  If not, I'll write up the definition for proximity since Mithran's Robe already suggested command.

Alternate Guard - Alternating quickly between back and down-back after being put in blockstun.  Used to avoid throws and Proximity Unblockables.

Considering we have the directional arrows available, I don't see much reason to list keypad notation. The combo listings on both the Wiki pages and the forum use non-numerical directional designations.

The arrows are a pain in the ass to read. KoF motions should be written with qcf, dp, etc. etc.

I've seen people use ~ as a charge notation e.g. d~u+K for a flashkick motion, but also to denote button release e.g. D~.

You should probably add guard roll, cd counter, attack cancel roll.

Probably need a definition for mash.

well ya i use "~" for inputs such as charge d/b~f+D or f~b~f+C with Takuma...

also you could add hold and negative edge as Raiden has such moves... hold (D) and release )D( ...could make writing combos with him easier... such as...

charge level 3/4 (B) (D) > )B( > s.A > )D( > NeoMax

It's okizeme, not okizemi.

起き攻め【おきぜめ】
For anyone that can read Japanese it should be clear the last syllable is /me/ not /mi/
