   This wasn't really designed to be a big faq but a pocket guide. What I mean 
   by that is something that's about 5-6 pages or so and can come in handy at
   the arcade without the excess pages. You can develop your own strategy cause
   yours is the best suited for you. Why use someone elses? You can base some
   of your fundmentals on someone elses, but I think making up your own sets you
   apart from the rest. A known strategy gets learned by your competitors and is
   less effective, so you can make your own and make adjustments when the 
   opposition starts catching on. Well on to Liu Kang.

   "Thousands of years ago in a battle with the fallen elder god known as
   Shinnok, I was responsible for the death of an entire civilization. To rid
   all realms of Shinnok's menace I waged a war that plunged the earth into
       centuries of darkness and banished Shinnok to a place called the
   Netherealm. Now after Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of Earth's warriors, 
   Shinnok has managed to escape his confines of the Netherealm. The war is 
   now being fought once again, and this time it can be won by mortals." 
				     - Raiden -

 lui kang's story

   Still the immortal champion of Mortal Kombat, Liu Kang finds himself
   venturing into the realms of Edenia to rescue the princess Katana from the
   vile clutches of Quan Chi.  Unsuccessful in his mission Liu returns to
   Earth and mounts an effort to bring together Earth's greatest warriors.
   He does it this time to not only to free Katana's home world but also to
                 assist his mentor and Earth's protector - Raiden.

 combo system

	      There are no more long button tapping combos. Now combos consist
			  of punches - kicks and special moves.


		  These are combos I have done so when I get more you'll
			        have a full list to choose from.
		These were all done on the CPU, so I don't know the effectiveness
					 on humans.

			       *means Tragics' (Ben Cureton) combo

		(NOTE: These are not juggle combos, all are standing custom combos)
