This goes all characters. When trying to punish attacks, if you use a normal move it will come out 1 frame later because recovery from blocking is 1 frame. So trying to punish a move that is -6 will mean you need an attack with 5 frame startup unless its a special attack. Special attacks start up normally because they are reversals.

I play mainly with Cuthroat spec and i'm currently on a 23-1 streak on ranking play with Kano. Kano's blade throw move is pretty fast and I usually use it as a basis to open up space with my opponent. I can suggest you to do the same by spamming blades from long-range.A- Opponent can either duck or wait in block stance for your spamming to end. You will win by chip damage, keep this strategy going until opponent decides to move.
B-Opponent can move airborne, Kano's up ball and Kano ball moves are prety lethal when opponent tries to close down on you. C- Opponent can teleport behind you, you need to be alert at all times for it, up- ball and Kano ball are once again life-savers, you can distance yourself again from your opponent by hitting them with one of those. D- Opponent may try to spam projectiles as well, if you do the timing well, you should be able to spam projectiles quicker with Kano. When you open up a good amount of space, you can constantly throw those blades and the opponent won't even breathe.

Blade throw dmg is about 6 % but when you power-up in your Cutthroat spec and throw blades when powered up, it will damage about 8 % ( 7.8 or sth like that ) which is pretty high.

A great follow up to use in his cybernetics variation is 1 + 1 then throw in an eye laser. After that use any combo or special after that.
