Korean Backdash

From Electric Wind God Fist

Also know as KBD is a movment tech that allows the cancelling of a Backdash with anoter backdash. Without being cancelled, a backdash must completely finish before another backdash can be done, which makes it difficult to create much space between the opponent. Thus, the backdash cancel is an essential technique for any Tekken player to learn.

However, the value of the technique is in how it is applied to an already comprehensive game plan. For beginners without a solid grasp of their own moves, a bit of extra backwards movement is not very useful.


The input for a backdash cancel naturally begins with a backdash, b,b (i.e, b,n,b). From here, every extra backdash can be done with db,b,n,b, with the db being the cancel into crouch.

It's also possible to cancel with a sidestep (u~n or b~n), but this is both slower and breaks your guard during the sidestep so is not recommended.
