    III. Abbreviations 
    ========================================================================

    Motion: Slide your finger on the directional pad in a smooth continuous 
    motion, from one direction to another. 
    ( ) : Execute commands inside parentheses simultaneously. 
    * : Designates a move that can be done in the air. 
    ======================================================================== 
    IV. Basic Moves and facts 
    ======================================================================== 
    Before playing Rival Schools, you should know all of these basic moves: 
    **Burning Vigor attacks** 
    Each fighter has a 9 level "Vigor" bar that can be carried over in 
    between rounds. It is similar to the super bar in the Street Fighter 
    Alpha games. when the bar reaches level one or higher, you can perform a 
    Burning Vigor attack. Each Burning Vigor attack drains one level from 
    your vigor bar. You can increase the bar by getting hit and performing 
    moves. 
    **Team Up Technique** 
    When the Vigor bar reaches level Two or higher, you can perform a Team 
    Up Technique <TUT>. These awesome moves allow your teammate to briefly 
    enter the fray and help you greatly. Each TUT drains two levels from the 
    Vigor bar. TUTs vary depending on who your partner is. 
    **Ditch N' Spin** 
    When your opponent attacks you Tap R1 to ditch and get behind your 
    opponent. 
    **Throws** 
    To perform a throw, tap the R2 button when close to your opponent. To 
    throw a crouching opponent, tap (D+R2). To perform a Reverse Throw, use 
    the Ditch N' Spin manuever (see above) to get behind your opponent, then 
    throw them. 
    **Run** 
    To run toward your opponent, tap F, then hold F. During a run, tap P to 
    do a headbutt, WK to do a sliding kick, or HK to do a flying kick. 
    **Rival Launcher** 
    Tap (DF+HP) or (DF+HK) to launch your opponent into the air. After that, 
    tap U to do an automatic super jump. From here, you can perform an air 
    juggle that will surely annoy your opponent. Usually, Tap WP, WK, then 
    do an attack that is usable in the air. Rival Launchers can also be used 
    in combos. 
    **Safe Fall** 
    When you are knocked back or into the air, tap any two buttons 
    simultaneously to do a safe fall. This prevents you from being comboed 
    even more and serves as a quick recovery. 
    **Tardy Counter** 
    Immediately after you block an attack, perform any special move to do a 
    tardy counter. Tardy Counters can be done at any time during a fight. 
    **Dashing** 
    To dash toward your opponent, tap F, F. To dash away, tap B, B. 
    **Get Up** 
    After falling down, press any direction to get up in the corresponding 
    direction. To attack while getting up, press the direction and attack 
    button simultaneously. 
    **Super Jump** 
    Tap D, U to jump very high into the air. 
    **Blocking** 
    To block, hold B when your opponent attacks you. To Air Block, hold B 
    while in the air. 
    **Throw Escape** 
    Perform a throw just as your opponent does to cancel them out.
