Advanced Exercise 1 - Assist timings
Now that we have a hit confirm in mind, we want to time our assists properly to cover ourselves as much as possible.
Set the AI to "Guard All" and repeat the beginner exercise 1.
Pay attention to the gap between your special/heavy landing and your assist landing.
Widen this gap as much as you can and practice concise assist timing that doesn't leave a gap for your opponent to act.
You want to repeat this with both assists and with all 3 characters as each character in your team will have a different combination of assists. Some assists are unable to do this or find it very difficult, you can ignore these for now.
