Are you tired of losing and feeling lost when you play Street Fighter?

If so, Simplifying Street Fighter is a guide designed for you, the newcomer, to hone your skills in Street Fighter 4 so you can be better prepared for Street Fighter 5. If you're like most players, you struggle with nearly every aspect of the game: offense, defense, execution and combos, and generally having a game plan that is more complex than just mashing buttons at every opportunity.
Street Fighter is a series that requires practice, finesse, and knowledge. Unfortunately, most players don't have any guidance on where to begin when learning the game, which leads to lots of frustration and losses. This guide is designed to give you a road map for improving your skills so that when SF5 drops, you can hit the ground running!
Lots of players are under the misconception that since SF5 is a newer game, there's no point in playing SF4 and improving. While it is true that there will be lots to learn in SF5, such as new engines and characters, this is not a reason not to improve on your Street Fighter fundamentals in the meantime.
Like anything else worth doing in life, developing a foundation of solid fundamentals is the key to improving. Even though SF5 will have brand new characters and mechanics, the core elements of Street Fighter remain the same throughout the franchise. Execution, footsies and space control, combos, punishing, and resource management are important in all Street Fighter games and this guide will show you how to use SF4 to improve on these aspects of your game.
