Reset
Reset

Technical Definition-Intentionally ending a combo early in order to "reset" the damage scaling and get a mix up on the opponent, usually by leaving them standing. The attacker gives up some guaranteed damage by not finishing the combo for an attempt at even more damage with another combo. Because the defender does not get access to the invincibility or options provided by being knocked down, resets can be situationally harder to deal with than oki.
