Parry & Counter Ryuzo's Attacks For Opening

Parry & Counter Ryuzo

If timed correctly, most of the attacks that Ryuzo hurls at you can be parried and countered. Anticipate his first strike, and follow up with several attacks. Should you miss a parry, get some distance to get your bearings and try again.
