How to do Crouch cancelling in Tekken 7, punishing snake edge
Crouch cancelling is an advanced technique where your character can go from Crouch to Standing instantly.
By performing a Crouch Canel we skip the While Standing (WS) state to get some advanced setups and optimize combos for better damage.
Let’s see an example here today.
Suppose say you block the snake edge from Brayan and I’m playing Hwoarang.
Hwoarang’s best while standing options 44 for +frames or WS 3 for a knockdown and a guaranteed ff3 afterwards. While these options are decent they don’t deter the opponent from using the snake edge again.
Here my best option is to do back 3 for damage and crouch cancel comes into play here as I wont be able to do a back 3 in WS state.
Option 1: Back Back. ( Canceling the Crouch with a Back Dash)
Option 2: Tap Up while in the crouch. ( Canceling the Crouch with a Side step, can only be done with up)
Option 3: Forward. ( This is called Wave Dash which only some characters have access to, as you’re cancelling the crouch dash with a forward)
For Hwoarang tapping up is the best option. You can check the video for all the tools Hwoarang has at his disposal.
