                                <<<<<< WHAT'S NEW ? >>>>>>
     - 6/29/97 | First version released, there is much more that needs to be added.
                              Layout done by myself using Figlet.
                        Has Julia's official moveslist, not Michelle's.
     Julia Chang is the second time release character. She is one of the most
     dangerous charcaters in the game if used very intelligently. All characters
     are dangerous if used effectively, its just certain characters that people
     push aside cause they can't do many moves with are some of the most fearsome
     fighters. Lei is a good example cause he uses the 5 animal kung-fu system.
     Not many people know all of the stances inside and out, the ones who do make
     Lei move so fluidly through his stances creating a opponent to be reckoned
     with. Julia is a great character for the advanced juggler.
     Upside ............... Julia has tons of moves. Mixing it up shouldn't be too
                            hard if you practice with her like crazy. Her power
                            comes from her speed and variations of combos and
     Downside ............. You need to know her like the back of your hand to be 
                            very effective. She is a top notch choice though if 
                            you can create attacks on the fly.

     Searching for Michelle.........
     Julia studies archeology in Michelle Chang's tribal lands. As a baby,
     Julia was deserted in the ruins of ancient Native American settlements,
     where Michelle found her. Michelle rescued Julia and brought her up
     with love. Julia loved Michelle and her adopted tribe and trained with
     Michelle to protect her beloved homeland.
     When Julia was 18, stories of sudden disappearances of famous martial
     artists all over the world began to reach the tribe. The tribe knew the
     cause, which was contained in the tribal legends...the legend of the
     God of Fighting. People in the tribe feared that Michelle's pendant,
     the key to Native American sacred treasure, had something to do with
     the disappearances.
     With apprehension spreading through the tribe, Michelle left for Japan
     to ask Heihachi why he had sought to take the pendant during the second
     tournament. Michelle hoped to learn about the origin of the God of
     Fighting's power. Michelle did not return. Julia suspected Heihachi and now
     seeks him out to discover the truth.

     The dude has a total package of defense, offense, you name it. The key here
     is to try to interrupt his attacks frequently. Dodging frequently also helps
     but don't abuse a good thing. Jin tries to crowd out his opponents. Playing
     keep away won't fair too well. Instead opt for a counter-attack strategy.
     Paul likes to sit back and wait for opportunity to knock at his door. If you
     try this strategy he will more than likely beat you to the punch. The best
     way to get the ball rolling is to start with some low attack then follow up 
     with a combination of maybe high then mid range. Mix it up. Don't brawl back
     and forth with him though, that's his forte. More or less dodge very 
     frequently after his mistakes beacuse recovery time between a lot of his 
     attacks is a little slow.
     Ling is a pretty good match up for Julia. When she goes into the Art of 
     Phoenix, stay on her and go low and follow up with another low attack or 
     combo maybe low, high to catch her off guard.
     ---- Simple ie. Low sweep then skyscraper kick ----
     Nina is tough because alot of her attacks come from everywhere, like high, 
     high, mid, low, etc. Try to keep a good distance between yourselves and use 
     poke tactics.
     Keep low against Yoshi. Don't just sit there though cause you can get juggled
     with a uppercut. Most of Yoshi's attacks are mid and high range so keep that 
     in mind and emphasis low combo starters.
     I find that spinning attacks and sidestepping seems usefull if you time it 
     right against Law. If it is used correctly this is his biggest weakness. If
     not used correctly you will pay very dearly cause his kicks can track or 
     follow you while you go in and out of the background.
     When he starts his low combos poke at him with low sweeps and finish off with
     skyscraper kicks or alley oop, elbow Smashes or tequila sunrise attacks when 
     he tries to recover. From here there are alot of juggle opportunities. Mainly
     poke tactics are very useful and keeping a solid distance away from him allows
     you to poke him to death.
     Lei's main fault is when he gets on the ground. It isn't necessarily a 
     weakness, but it doesn't have as much flare as it did in the previous Tekken.
     His main priority is his different stances. Spinning attacks work very well 
     and he falls for the turnaround punch, low jab, skyscaper kick very often. So
     do most all of the other CPU characters. If you do it too much to characters
     who can reverse high attacks mainly Paul and Nina, they will more than likely
     stop you dead in you tracks on the turnaround punch and reverse it. But.....
     you can always "chicken" out of it and reverse them back.
     Sidestepping works like a gem against Hwoarang. Make sure you follow up 
     immediately afterwards though cause he has very quick recovery and can jab 
     you out of most opportunities you think you may have. Other than that he is 
     rather moderate, but can track like a punk when he starts losing.
     King is another character you can poke at and fair pretty well. He is quite 
     aggresive because his moves aren't plentiful so he has to do what he can to 
     make up for his lack of moves. When he goes for multis poke him or sweep him 
     if you can. Keeping away doesn't do too well cause he likes to get in your 
     face like he knows you.  Sticking and poking at him while playing some tough 
     defense you can carry you through.
     Since he is very aggressive I base some emphasis on the 1,2,1 Moon Cannon to 
     get a counterhit juggle launcher, then start juggling. Poking and spinning 
     work quite well and if timed right while he is doing those Cossack Kicks or 
     Swinging Punches you can be preparing yourself for the unblockable and 
     executing a juggle. 
     Kuma is similar to Gun-Jack the only thing I would watch for is interrupting 
     her attacks and plan on breaking out of alot of grabs.
     Use strategy according to the character that is being mimicked.
     Bryan is also a very aggresive fighter with too many powerful combos that take
     off mad damage. Poking works somewhat but he has too many damaging blows that
     if you mess up in least you will get beat down. Spinning seems useless 
     against him cause of his low shin kicks. A good tactic to use is the one 
     similar to Gun-Jack's.  I do a lot of Moon Cannons (1,2,1) and juggle follow 
     ups to wear him down.
     I emphasis sidestepping alot against him because of the tile splitter he uses
     often and low sweeps followed by a high, mid attack.
     He uses the backflip, tooth fairy like crazy. Block high for both moves and 
     maybe grab or combo afterwards.
     Namco Limited. Most of the names of the moves are official
     some I modified for visual clarity to place a picture in
     your mind of the move. All moves are from the Julia Chang
     section of the Namco page and Gamest Mook Magazine.
     1 or 2 moves were added.
