Fighting Style : Kick Boxing


In the kickboxing world, a new style is being created. A newcomer, Brad
Burns, suddenly appeared and won many successive victories. Because of his
good looks, he has many female fans. What's more, he likes to go out with
such girls at night after his battles and present a charming personality.
In the ring, his manner is the opposite of his social self, and he overwhelms
opponents with sharp attacks. 

Quickly he was rising to the champion's seat. After becoming the undefeated
champion, there was nobody in his region left to do battle with, so he began
to look for his next stage. About that time, a woman told him about the World
Fighting Tournament. It is a different kind of martial-arts fighting, and he
wanted the thrill of an especially heated fight. Thus, he determined he would
participate in the tournament.

Special Notes
-------------
Brad has got some special action that can be involved by entering certain
direction after a move is executed, allow him to sort of dodge towards or
away from his opponent, as well as slipping left or right.

There should be no problem understanding DUCKING (dodge towards opponent)
and BACK SWAY (dodge away from opponent) but it is rather confusing about
slipping LEFT and RIGHT since it is based on Brad's foot position...

I will not explain foot position, but I will try to make it easy to input
the desire SLIPPING action.

SLIPPING LEFT  - Slip towards Brad's chest.
SLIPPING RIGHT - Slip towards Brad's back.

... so if you want Brad to Slip Left after a Jab Straight [P,P], enter the
direction Brad's chest is facing [u/d] after [P,P]; if you want Brad to just
Slip Left, enter the direction Brad's chest is facing [u/d] and press [P+K+G].
