I naturally gravitated towards Yoshimitsu when I first started the game. (Oddly enough, I only started because there was a panda in it.) After about a month of renting SCIII from gamefly, I hadn't used him once. Now I've got Tekken 5, and I found I enjoyed his numerous stances, and later realized I was good with his power attacks.
Anyway, to the meat of this post. When I start against someone I don't know, I use > 1+2 and < 1+2 (The forward and back body slams) right off the bat to try to get them on the ground. Assuming I'm better than them, I follow it up by kamekaze-ing them as soon as they start coming back at me. I'm pretty good with the kamekaze, and rush at them when they arent blocking, even if they're the type to block quite a bit. If they hit me, out of vanity I'll often go to the indian stance to heal for a perfect, using a kangaroo kick or just moving to get out of it. Often I'll beat them with nothing but kamekazes and the occasional slam.
HOWEVER: If they're better than me, I'll start getting technical. I'll throw in the occasional grab, slam and kamekaze only when I think my attack will get in before a slow one of theirs, and if they go low, I'll start jumping on them with the flea.
If that doesn't work, and they continue blocking: I'll get desperate, and use only kamekazes and grabs, using the flea if they go low, but that never seems to work. I'll usually lose from anywhere between their perfect, and a very close match. I know I'm forgetting to juggle, but I always have trouble getting the combos in at the right pace, or I'll just flat forget them. What should I work on mastering, and are there any really good combos I should try harder to work in?
EDIT: I've officially worked in the combo 4, 4, 2, 2, 4, 4, 1, 1, 1, 1
