One jab and one reset is all G needs to KO Akuma from full health in this brutal Street Fighter 5 beat down sequence from Javits

The moral of the story for this one? Don't get touched with even a single jab while G has V-Trigger stocked.

The President of the World has become widely known in the Street Fighter community for his ability to suddenly demolish life bars with his V-Trigger 1, but getting an entire 900 health from a sequence that starts with a jab and then a cancel into VT, (meaning it's heavily scaled from the start) further drives home the point that this character needs a bit of revision from developers.

We recently saw a pretty stylish sequence between G and Akuma that went in the latter's favor, but Street Fighter scientist Javits Arias is balancing the scales with an answer from G.

Javits has been exploring the character quite a bit lately and has a good handful of similar videos posted on his Twitter feed.

At this point it's no secret that G is capable of some pretty crazy damage against anyone on the SF5 roster, but figuring out more practical ways into such damage is much different than the "by any means necessary" videos we see a little more regularly.

Check out the sequence right here and feel free to share your reactions in the comments below. Be sure to follow Javits on Twitter for a consistent supply of his intriguing SF5 findings.
