Ryu_Apprentice has posted a very interesting video exploring how to block some of the unblockable (1f hard to blockables) setups in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.


The methods discussed here aren't fool proof, and it's important that you to have some idea of the setup the opponent is trying to throw out there, but these are solid tactics to make unblockables in SSF4 AE v2012 a bit easier to deal with.

The new premise is that you hold down-forward on wakeup after being setup for an unblockable, like after you're thrown — and then hold forward on the joystick at the precise time. As Ryu_Apprentice explains it, this alters your character's hitbox a bit and makes it so you can block some of the previously unblockable setups.

The video below has several examples of this happening along with a great explanation and other tactics for handling these scenarios, so you should definitely check it out.
