If your opponent jump
-360+k (catchs him or move you out of the corner both is good)
-Jumping later +Airgrab (lets oil up and change the pressure)
-Jumping Early LK(DAMN GOOD ANTIAIR!)
-JumpingMP (Hughe damage!)
If your opponent stay groundet:
-just block wait for a Opening c.MK xx Slide+press--LK.Oil Start Sheningan!

Indeed, I also think Blanka will be a good MU for Hakan, U2 shuts down every move too except for eletricity. He can't even do the special hop trick in Hakan's wakeup. One of the few MU's that I'm still using U2.

Just a note on the Blanka matchup. In my limited experience, Hakan makes Blanka his bitch. I'm pretty sure I punished all his balls on block with oil slide. That pretty much shuts down a good chunk of his game.

Really? For most matchups I still use U2. Overall I think it is better because against good players if they see your ultra flashing they know they can't jump. I am gonna put out a list of all ultras/moves it can beat out when I actually get the game.
U1 is still good in certain matchups though. But U2 seems to allow you more control over the match. For me Control > Damage.

Balrog seems to be a real pain in the ass. I'm hoping that the new cool FA dnc stuff that UltraDavid has been working on will help in this matchup. Probalby would be a good idea to figure out which Hakan normals do well against Rog's pokes, if any.

I played a good number of matches with Hakan against my friend's Sagat. On paper this matchup is pretty bad but if you play patiently you can do surprisingly well. I like U1 in this match as I feel it's a lot harder to land U2 against players who know what they are doing.
At the start of the match, keep your distance for a bit, if Sagat tries to rush in/jump you can do a max distance st.HP to keep him out. You can also punish poorly spaced tiger knees with st.HP. If he goes right into zoning you with tiger shots, start absorbing a few and dodging with coward crouch (down+PPP move). Inch your way forward, but stay mostly grounded as jumping over tiger shots is a recipe for disaster. Once you are within 3/4 screen of Sagat, you can pretty much slide on reaction under high tiger shots to knock him down. LK oil up and let the shenanigans begin. Once you have meter, if Sagat ends up full screen again zoning with tiger shots, it should be a lot easier to get in. EX Oil when you can. On reaction, you can FA dash forward through fireballs, and cancel the dash with a normal immediately. Use f+HK out of the dash if you are in range for it, otherwise use a light normal like cr.LK to stop a bit short. If you have a lot of meter while oiled up you can also easily EX slide any tiger shot from pretty much near full screen. If you have a big life lead you can play the turtle game. If Sagat decides to rush you down, keep him out with normals and if he does jumps at close range you can slide under him to safety. Counter with U1 if he is poking too close and not respecting your space.
In general try not to jump too much except possibly when mixing up on Sagat's wakeup. If you train the opponent (this goes for other characters, not Sagat) to fear U1 in empty jump situations you can often catch them with Oil Dive when they jump or dash back.
I've still gotta figure out which normals work best on Sagat and if you can do anything about his j.MP.

Not sure if its been mentioned, but I 360k'd a raging demon on reaction today. I wish I coulda seen the look on the other guys face. I cracked up when it actually worked lol.
Also, if your sitting in the corner ducking fireballs against ryu, you can forward jump one then immediately hp slide and you can hit ryu before his next fireball. I did that twice within the same match and he basically stopped throwing them.

Anyone have advice against turtling Juri's? Between the fireballs and that damn dive kick I can't really seem to get in on her easily.

What should you be looking to do against Bison? it seemed like everytime I did anything I traded or got beat but I didn't get much of a chance to oil up.
I don't know if you should thank me or damn me but I am making Hakan look very bad out there. I just think he's the coolest character to look at and everybody else seems bland in comparison so he's my main!

Get the life advantage early and just turtle back, stay full screen and fireballs arent an issue, and just block her dive kicks its a free combo every time it gets blocked.
Also the Blanka match up for us is COMPLETELY FREE, we shut down all of his moves except his electricity and even then we shouldn't be trying to cross him over and get hit by it, i'll upload a vid later of how free blanka is, just get a life lead and turtle theres nothing blanka can do.

I doubt it'll be useful every time but it might help you out once or twice in a match. Abuse it if they're a noob.
