Knocking an opponent down with Liu Kang’s Amplified Bicycle Kick, or , gives a high amount of hit advantage. This gives Liu Kang a safe jump. In order to perform the safe jump, you must slightly walk forward then do a forward jump kick. What’ll happen is if your opponent does a Getup Attack, Liu Kang will jump over and completely avoid it. If the opponent does not do a Getup Attack, they must block the jump kick. The jump kick will leave Liu Kang at an advantage allowing for pressure.
This will not work against Getup Attacks that hit all around the opponent such as Geras’ +. This also will not work if the opponent does a Getup Forward Roll or Short Delayed Getup.
