  • 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


  • none of Jhun's stand normals are special or command move cancellable
  • 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

Command Moves

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

  • Jhun strikes out a kick, turns his back to the screen and into a stance

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

  • Jhun lands a downward stomp on the opponents head
  • Jhun will jump back 1/3 of the screen after landing the hit or if the opponent blocks
  • must be blocked high so a useful tool for crouching opponents
  • 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.
