I. NOTATION
===========
f,b,d,u   joystick motions (forward, back, down, up); hold if capitalized
db...     diagonals (db,df,uf,ub); again, hold if capitalized
P,K,G     press punch, kick or guard buttons, respectively
+         buttons must be pressed together
,         move separator
PG        punch-then G-cancel
->        denotes beginning of a new move / sequence
MC        denotes a major counter (interrupt)
OTB       'on the bounce'
[]        the move is entered in a sequence, but is misses

If a move doesn't have a "(blocked)" note, assume it hits. This list should
give you a general idea on flowcharts; do not memorize it, try to come up with
your own sequences and combinations. Much depends on your opponent too - try to
vary your game.
