Oki
Oki

Technical Definition-Short for "okizeme" which is translated literally from Japanese as "get up and attack." Oki is used to refer to the mindgame behind knockdown situations as both players usually have various options when one is knocked down. The attacker is trying to play around defensive options and land another hit while the defender is trying to guess correctly to escape pressure. Can also be to used describe an attribute that a character possesses. A character is considered to have "good oki" if they are easily able to hit their opponent again after knocking them down, which means having any combination of good frame advantage or positioning after a knockdown, easy access to a hard knockdown, or powerful mix ups. Also known as "okizami", "okizumi", or "What's for breakfast?"

In Other Words-"Did you kill him?"
"No, but I thought about it."
"What are you gonna do when he wakes up?"
"That's up to him."
