Ryu is a very well-rounded character and is perfect for any beginner to advanced player to use. The reason for this is because Ryu has relatively simple tools, and less difficult inputs compared to the rest of the cast. To add to that, he has 1000 health and stamina thus making him an excellent choice to start with.

In essence, Ryu is an excellent indicator of a player's skill level because of his fundamental-based play style. Playing Ryu teaches footsies (using appropriate pokes in different situations), zoning (knowing when to throw fireballs), and an introductory list of attacks and combos that prove to be beneficial for new players to learn and familiarize themselves with Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Ryu is a jack of all trades character that doesn't excel at anything outside of zoning. Unfortunately, there are many characters in the game that take away his fireball game completely, so Ryu will have match ups where he's at a severe disadvantage. He still has tools to deal with most situations, but other characters can do things Ryu can do better; some characters have better fireball zoning game, some characters have better footsies, some characters have better comeback potential etc.. In order to play Ryu well, you need to accept that you will be put into situations where you're at a severe disadvantage. When you're at an advantage, you won't really feel like you have an advantage, but in disadvantageous situations, you'll feel very oppressed, so it's important to stay and remain vigilant if you wish to play Ryu at higher levels.

What's the secret behind the Umeshoryu?

MCZ|Daigo: Just do it without thinking about the consequences. Just think about the now, and pull it out when you feel it's time.
