Footsies is an archaic term for the primarily grounded component of the neutral game, played at mid-range, especially in Street Fighter styled fighting games. It tends to revolve around moving back and forth, and poking each other, usually with low cancellable normals hence footsies, since characters tend to attack with crouching kicks. Sonic Hurricane has an advanced guide to a large number of specific footsie scenarios that can help make playing this component of the game more concrete. JuiceboxFGC also has a good guide to footsies that primarily focuses on whiff punishment.

How does one get better at this? Honestly though I give alot of the blame to laggy online screwing up my moves lol. Showing 1 - 5 of 5 comments. I'm not that good at footsies either, but I'll give you some info I came up with while learning. You can't really learn footsies or practice them like you would practice execution, it will come with sheer experience, so try to fight plenty of different people and characters.

Picking a footsie character is definitely a good idea to improve your footsies with your main characters. Then try to figure out what you can apply to your main. Like "oh I can use this move to counter footsie sweeps easily", or "I should poke with that move a lot more", or "that move is great for easy anti-airing" If you've ever worked on a specific matchup, you've also probably found out specific punishes, counter footsies and whatnot for some character, it'd be a good idea to make notes of that work somewhere, and see if you could use it for other matchups overall.

Finally one thing you should avoid at first is to try to do like the pros you might have watched on Youtube, they move a lot left and right to try to bait stuff out, mimicking that will get you hit a lot at first. Instead try to focus on your opponent's movement more than yours, and more importantly on the distance between you and him.

Even though it looks very easy and natural, movement actually takes practice. It's even more important in 3D fighters and air dashers, but it is also true in Street Fighter.

It's also good training to go in a match with one particular thing you want to practice in mind. Like "During this match, I'll only try to counter footsie with cr. Hope that helps.
