Executed by performing a full circle motion for either side and pressing punch, Juni will jump backwards spinning and will end knocking the opponent to the ground with a knee attack on his stomach.
The punch button pressed determines the height and distance of the jump. In the light version, Juni makes a low heel and around 10% of the screen. In the medium version, Juni makes a screen height of the heel and back about 15% of the screen. In heavy version, Juni will make a screen height of the jump and will return 25% of the screen.
Like the other grabs, Earth Direct must be used close to the opponent or a miss animation will play. This attack does not do as much damage as the other grabs, but the heavy version inflicts a lot of stun.
Like the other grab attacks, Earth Direct is unblockable. Normally, it is used as a tick throw option during pressure.
