Crouching attack

What it is

A crouching attack is one performed from a state where you are crouching (particularly a normal move).


Crouching punches tend to have upright hitboxes and either quick startup or good reach; kicks tend to have low hitboxes, and may be sweeps (whereas few standing kicks are).

In some games, there are “close” and “far” moves much like there are for standing attacks.
