The Kaihou (快跑? "Pleasant Trot") is one of Yang's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

Street Fighter III series Shoryuken motion + Kick
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Quarter-circle forward + Kick

Description[edit | edit source]

The attack is simply a rapid forward command dash: Yang disappears in a blur, and reappears some distance forward.

The distance travelled and startup and recovery times are determined by the kick button pressed: stronger kick buttons mean greater distance, but also greater startup and recovery time[1].

The EX Special version travels the whole screen instantly without startup or recovery time.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

The Kaihou be used to cross-up an opponent, pursue a fleeing foe or generally confuse them.
