- "The wind!"
|Street Fighter V||+|
Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Ryu energizes his fists. This gives him access a special counter called Isshin. Upon countering an attack, a shockwave of energy releases around Ryu. If this shockwave hits the opponent, he performs a straight punch. The counterattack causes the opponent to crumple, allowing Ryu to follow-up with an attack.
Isshin can also be used in the middle of a combo after various special moves. When activated, Ryu instead does a rushing straight that travels forward, knocking the opponent away. It can be used from regular and EX Hadoken, regular grounded hit Shoryuken, and regular Joudan Sokutogeri. Isshin can be used twice as a strike and once as a counter.
Using Isshin as a counter, Ryu can counter everything except throws, giving him a highly functional defensive option. The opponent will be vulnerable to additional attacks after the Isshin strike, making for a great opportunity to deal major damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Isshin was previously shown in Ultra Street Fighter IV's OMEGA Mode as a follow up to Hanagashi, a parry styled similar to Street Fighter III.
- Kakko Fubatsu is another incarnation of Kaze no Kobushi, Ryu's ultimate technique in the manga Street Fighter III: Ryu Final. Ryu's activation cry of "The wind!" references the original name, and Isshin appears similar to the attack used to defeat Necalli in A Shadow Falls. When cancelled from EX Hadoken, Ryu calls it by its alternative name, Fist of the Wind, or Kaze no Ken.
