The Kaihou (快跑? "Pleasant Trot") is one of Yang's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

Street Fighter III series Arcade Stick S + Arcade Button Kick
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Kick


The attack is simply a rapid forward command dash: Yang disappears in a blur, and reappears some distance forward.

The distance travelled and startup and recovery times are determined by the kick button pressed: stronger kick buttons mean greater distance, but also greater startup and recovery time[1].

The EX Special version travels the whole screen instantly without startup or recovery time.


The Kaihou be used to cross-up an opponent, pursue a fleeing foe or generally confuse them.
