Knockdown evasion

What it is

A variety of knockdown evasion systems allow you to tech out before you end up lying down on the ground (i.e., completely in knockdown).


The methods of knockdown evasion take two forms:

  1. Recovery in midair after being blown away.
  2. Rolling just as one hits the ground.

The latter is what ukemi is, though not all games share the same dichotomy as this site.
