Introduction

Okizeme with Baiken is generally a question of choosing between mixup strength, safety against reversal DP/blitz, and coverage against reversal backdash. Against an informed and properly defending opponent, she does not get to all three, but she can still force opponents into dangerous guessing games on defense because of her high reward off a throw, strong selection of 50-50 mixups, meterless instant-overhead setups and very high damage output.

With some precision and finesse, Baiken can cover almost all universal defensive options quite well. However constantly switching between her various okizeme options and keeping your opponent unsure in their reversal actions is generally the best strategy, since that is what allow Baiken to get away with her greedier, more threatening okizeme setups. The mindgame levels with Baiken's okizeme can be quite nuanced, and generally she gets much more reward out of punishing an opponent's defensive choices(be they passive or active).

Okizeme falls generally into three classes: Tatami okizeme, which is overaly very safe and advantageous; classic safejump mixups, which are not as safe but have more mixup power, and meaty attacks, which are always-available, straightforward but have inconsistent reward and safety.


For more detail, consult the user-friendly The Baiken Handbook or the specialized Okizeme document. These are highly detailed, essentially complete resources that detail all currently known okizeme setups along with the thought processes behind using them.


Example Routes

This is the equivalent of the combo list from the combo page but for oki.

Categorize this section based off of the type of knockdown, and break down your options from that knockdown. Be sure to explain the strengths and weaknesses of each oki route. For Example: Oki #1 gives a left/right mixup and leaves you + on block, but loses to a well timed wakeup throw, and to IB throw.

Choosing an Oki Route

Explain the thought process that goes into picking an oki route.

This should cover topics such as: Identifying when you can do an oki route, what you get out of an oki route, how do the resources you and the enemy have change your choice of oki route, and when do you go for damage/mixup/safe pressure.

Video Examples

The Baiken Handbook contains video examples of okizeme setups.
