HIt confirming is a very essential concept to understand when trying to get better at fighting games. Hit confirming is exactly what it says, confirming you've hit your opponent. This tutorial explains exactly WHAT hit confirming means and also how to practice it at home.
Basically hit confirming is knowing (visually knowing) that you've hit your opponent with a string which could have been blocked. Think of it like this, combos can be punished if your opponent is constantly blocking them. Hit confirming ensures that YOU know your hitting the opponent, and not hitting a BLOCKED opponent.
When most new players learn about combos, they learn combos like c.hp, shoryuken or simply put, one hit attacks into a special move. In learning this, they don't realize that better players will just block the combo and punish when neccesary. By learning links and multiple hits, you are able to visually make the connection that your opponent is getting hit or not.
Simply put, you do a string...your opponent get hit by it? Continue the combo. He block it? Stop the combo, and go for something else.
