Performed by holding forward and pressing medium punch, Cody punches the opponent quickly in the midsection, causing medium damage. It can be followed by any special/unique/super attack, making it a great combo starter. The attack is so quick that it can only be countered by a Focus Attack or a special with the Super Armor ability. It can be avoided by crouching (though not with all characters), leaving Cody vulnerable to a punish.
The attack is based on one of Cody's punching attacks in the original Final Fight.
