Over the years we've seen countless tutorials, character guides, and instructional videos. However, the majority of these usually cater to players who already have a general understanding of fighting game basics.


In an attempt to really introduce newcomers to the scene, and walk with them hand-in-hand through the basics, novriltataki put together a new video series called Airdash Academy. Although the series will mostly look at air-dash fighting games, this first episode discusses the starting points for different genres of fighters.

We get to see where a beginner's focal point should lie when looking to delve into traditional 2D fighters, air-dash games, and even 3D titles. The explanation is simple, yet effective, and this series is something to look out for as more installments hit YouTube.

Hit the jump to check out Airdash Academy episode 1.
