What is a Shimmy?

Postby Deadpool » December 21st, 2016, 12:19 am

I've heard the term recently in a lot of SFV videos and I still don't fully get what the term mean or how it's being used. Anyone know the meaning of the term? Is it a new word or has it been around for a long time? I've heard the term meaty before. Is this something like that? Sound almost like a player doing a flashy combo or something right? Don't know if I even spelled it right.

A shimmy is essentially baiting an opponent's action from close up.

Cammy does st. LK > throw. Then the next time she does st. LK > slight walk back and whiff punishes the opponent's throw or button.
