Laura brings Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu to Street Fighter V, a first for the series

Laura is the next heir of the famed Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu fighting style, constantly looking for opponents around the world, to raise Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu awareness. Laura uses a methodical grapple style as well as agile movement resulting in an “up close and personal” strategy. Laura also serves as the first grappler in the Street Fighter series to have a projectile attack.

V-Skill: Linear Movement

By holding either back or forward and pressing medium punch + medium kick, Laura moves in the corresponding direction, getting her in and out of the opponent’s range at will. If no direction is held during the V-Skill activation, she will perform an overhead kick.

V-Trigger: Spark Show

Laura gets ready to zap the competition when she activates Spark Show. During her electrifying state, Laura’s Thunder Clap projectile flies further, she deals more stun on her attacks and grabs, and moves around further during her Linear Movements.
