alright boys and girls its time for the king of kang to drop some science and get you edumucated. I'm not sure what's gone on over the past 10 years but somewhere along the line, the art of the liu kang has been lost.
The deal is this, a proper liu kang is an art form unto itself...
i just watched every entry thus far and yes i did notice that most of those who entered round 1 were rocking the straight leg poke, but... you're missing one key element folks...
if i can teach you one thing, remember this... the extended kang'd out leg absolutely must be pointed towards the heavens as if to say "here's to you lord of the liu, i praise all that you do."
the liu kang is not a daffy with a safety grab, the liu kang is not a back scratcher with a safety grab... it is indeed a tightly tucked up steezed out safety grab with a straight leg ninga kick to the moon.
now get back out there, each and every one of you.. and hold em high. give it another try and make sure you kick em to the sky. i can't allow my legacy to fade out like a candle in a wind storm... not to quote elton john
here's a little visual stimulation for you... circa 2002... a decade ago... bring back the original steeze and report back to me in the morning.
and have fun..
