Tech

Can refer to one of several things

1. Tech (Knockdown)
Technical Definition-When being knocked down, pressing a button within a specific window so that the defender gets up earlier and reduces the amount of frame advantage for the attacker although not all moves can be teched. Some games also have the option of "delay tech" where the character can stay on the ground for a longer period of time than normal. Usually done to disrupt the timing and offense of the opponent.

In Other Words-Similar to ukemi in Judo which is literally translated to "receiving body" but more applicably means "falling safely."

2. Tech (Throw)
Technical Definition-Defending against a throw by inputting the throw command (or another specific input) at the same time as the attacker. Commonly also called a "break."

In Other Words-"'Get off me!' he says to Tracy Porter!"-Mike Mayock

3. Tech (Miscellaneous)
Technical Definition-Short for "technology." Refers to strategies or techniques that are often specific to a certain character or matchup e.g. "I can't wait to show off my sick Mizoguchi tech."

In Other Words-"Harold Lee, I would like to introduce you to an invention of mine."-Kumar Patel
