(During forward jump)


Executed by pressing down and Heavy Punch during a forward jump, Alex performs a diving cross chop. Upon reaching the ground, Alex performs a forward recovery roll.

Tactics Edit


In order for the move to come out, it must be performed at or after the peak of the forward jump (much like Necalli's dive kick). That being said, it is very unsafe on block. To make it safe, it's best to cancel the Flying Cross Chop into one of Alex's safer normals or throw. However, for any cancel to work, Alex must hit his opponent with this move. As with Alex's other aerial trajectory moves, whiffing it can be dangerous. It can be used to get out of the corner if his opponent is pressuring him.
