More to come soon!.... but only in this shrine.
"Falchion, this is but the basics of Yoshi's okizeme! Yoshi should be called "Move and you're dead" character...
I play in such a way that I always give my opponent a possibility to techroll/backroll (call it: move freely). This is but a trap to lure people for more damage. Juggles ended with d/f+3, f,f+4, d/f+1,2,D/B+2,2,2,... after all of them dash in and then watch! If they quickroll Sword Sweep is 99% guaranteed for another oki-oriented juggle (and you continue the pressure), if they backroll, you hit quickly b~f+3+4 to hit them with Kamikaze at the end of backroll animation... 3+4,~u and D/B+3 is guaranteed... and that's not all!
If people try to do ANYTHING after being hit by Kamikaze, and you do 3+4~u~D/B+3... and immediately dash in!... and you can still hunt for damage! on their backroll another Kamikaze is guaranteed (dash~b~f+3+4), and on techroll you've got a free Sword Sweep +JG (preferred one is the one after which you can still okizeme to death, d/f+1,2,D/B+2,2,2,2... for example.) This is a killing chain. (but if they stay on the ground, they're pushed back too much)
I'm but not sure what to do for people staying on the ground. all the options doesn't seem to be very fast. I suppose DGF 3 or if they stay for too long, u/f+3+4,1+2 and watch for things to come. Or FC,d/f+3 on roll, but it's not too much. Anyway, good thing. Also, if you SS and do FC,d/b+3,3,4, at an angle it will lift opponent from the ground for a free juggle THAT is oki-zeme oriented in addition. After any move that retracts fast, dash in, that's the key.
Another thing is DGF 3 after both FC,d/f+3 or Sword Sweep. If they move (stand up or so...) it juggles for massive damage and if they backroll after it, you dash in and get a free backthrow. On people's backroll (if they lie still, take a blow and backroll), if you're fast enough, you still get a free backthrow. The same is after 1+3 throw if they backroll, and after ss+2, d/f+1,2,D/B+2,2,2,... and FC,d/f+1, d/f+1,2,D/B+2,2,2,2 juggles. This can crush opponent's self confidence.
Yoshimitsu is a killer... but I won't talk more because I don't want Namco to weaken him again... Anyway, this was my way of oki-zeme. Not everybody may like it. I will make a detailed analysis in the ManjiKai shrine in a month or two... (another FAQ maybe will come, who knows... my experience is still low, I need more practice)"
