Description Edit

Executed by pressing forward and Medium Punch, Alex strikes his opponent with a downward, open-handed chop.



As an overhead attack, the main purpose is to break through the defenses of an opponent who insists on crouch guarding (as the attack must be blocked from a standing position). The draw back causes considerable delay, and this attack can easily be countered by an aggressive opponent by hitting Nash before he throws it. This move may be slow, but it's -4 on block. It also has great range, letting Alex apply overhead pressure farther than most characters.
