Swords have you beat? Are people pseudo-comboing you to hell and back? Well, kind fellow I have the answer for you;: the panic button!
Introducing the panic button. All you need to do to perform the aforementioned technique of thoughtlessness is dodge and then neutral light so that you perform a gravity cancel when someone is doing stupidly long combos.
WARNING: Unarmed and Axe are NOT good panic button contenders because they are too close range or too slow respectively. It does also not work very well against Katars’ or Guantlets’ ground game.
It’s stupid how well this works sometimes.
