                              THE ART OF ESCAPING
    			 *********************
    
    Counter those throws!!  If you don't like being thrown, then don't
    be thrown. All normal throws (throws that don't require a joystick
    motion) can be countered simply by pressing both left buttons or
    both right buttons.  If you get thrown otherwise, well.. you
    shouldn't have been standing around long enough for your opponent
    to tap the joystick for a power throw.  The jury is still out, but
    it is rumored that power throws and multi-part starter can be
    escaped with 1+2 or 3+4.
    
    	
    Theory 1:
    
    			
    Know the breaker for all multi-parts. If the Ankle is grabbed by
    King, start tapping 1+2 then 2+4 then 1+3 but PRESS the sequence
    QUICKLY. Reason: if King goes into the Indian Death Lock (CPU and
    all players use this move regardless if they can do the Romero
    Special or not) you've already pressed the counter: 1+2.  If they
    use the Scorpion Death Lock you've pressed the 2+4 counter.
    If they use the STF you've already pressed the 1+3 counter.
    
    Theory 2:
    
    Theory 2 is essentially the same as theory 1 but changed according
    to how it applies to the moves following the Arm Hyperextension.
    If King grabs the ARM, start tapping 1+3 then 1+2 then 2+4
    but PRESS the sequence QUICKLY. Reason: even novice players can
    tap 1+2,1+2 by accident after the arm hyperextension and get the
    triple, but you have tapped 1+3, which is the counter.  1+2 needs 
    to be the 2nd escape sequence you hit because it counters the
    Chicken Wing FaceLock (most players use this move regardless if
    they can do the Rolling Cradle or not) If they use the Reverse DDT
    you've already pressed the last escape sequence (2+4).

    			       HISTORY	
    		              *********		
    			      
    	He's really King the Second.  Raised in King's orphanage, he 
    was 24 years old when the original King was killed.  He put on the mask 
    and assumed the role as King's successor to honor his mentor and save 
    the orphanage.
     			      			
    	The new King only watched his mentor and really was unfitting 
    of the legend.  Armor King, knowing who killed King, feels an obligation 
    to prepare King the Second for a rightful revenge.
    			      
    	Four years have passed and King the Second is now a skillful 
    wrestler.  Feeling the time is right, Armor King tells his student 
    that the "God of Fight" was responsible for King's death.  Armor King 
    breaks down in tears as he tells the gruesome story.  King the Second 
    now knows his purpose in life.

    				DESCRIPTION
                                   *************
    
    King is second to no one in the area of damage and multiparts.  This 
    time he looks more like a wrestler than a Tiger with clothes.  I heard 
    somewhere that this is what Namco wanted him to look like this whole 
    time, and in Tekken 3 they finally got it!

                                  Fighting Strategies
                                 *********************
    					
    Playing as King:
    
    Multi-Parts are good but King is not dependent on them.  He's got many other 
    moves and combos.  One very simple combo I like to use is Turnaround Kick
    (b+4) followed by his Clothesline (1+2).  Or another one you could also do is 
    Turning Hand Knife (1+2), followed by Clothesline (1+2), then do a Flying 
    Cross Chop (f,F+1+2), and Turnaround Kick (b+4).  That last one only works 
    sometimes and you have to get the timing just right.
    
    King vs. King (Human vs. CPU):
    
    When fighting against the CPU you have to vary your attacks!  Ten Hits are 
    good because the CPU will usually fall for the last 2 hits.  Even if it does 
    block all of the hits it will put him/her far enough away to prevent a counter 
    attack.
     
    King vs. King (Human vs. Human):
    
    This is the good part!  Don't be afraid to use Multi's as most people don't 
    know how to break out of them.  You can do 10 hits every once in a while but 
    don't use them too much, because most of the hits are high and easy to counter.
    
    
    That's all!
