The most noobish noob thread ever..

the move you talk about is f,f+1 or sword smash but only on counter hit better known as CH, first of I would renconmend you to learn some fast moves that you save while using some basic simple moves are what you need, f,f+4 the move it self without the dash is crazy fast even faster than the most charactors basic left punch ,great at stopping botton marshers, knocks opppent down.

Also learn solar shark attack its not useable agnist a experinced player but a stupid cpu and your inputing skills should be better and good luck
