Whiff Punish
Whiff Punish

Technical Definition-Hitting an opponent who is still in their recovery frames from whiffing a move, leaving them unable to block. A derivative of this is the "wish punish" where a player whiff punishes a move that has a relatively short recovery on prediction rather than reaction.

In Other Words-Taken from the cross-counter in combat sports, which involves hitting an opponent after they have thrown a jab.
