Sou Hakkei (双発勁 Sou Hakkei?, "Twin Force Exert") is one of Chun-Li's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter Alpha 3. This attack appears as her V-Reversal in Street Fighter V.

All appearances Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade Button Punch x3 (During guard)


Executed by pressing forward and all three punches after blocking an attack, Chun-Li performs a push in the opponent who pushes the bottom of the screen.

Tactics Edit

Like most V-Reversals, the purpose is to stop opponent's pressure or to get out of tough situations. While her V-reversal will not cause a knock down, Chun-Li will create enough distance to position herself in the mid-range from her opponent.

Etymology Edit

The original name of this term is known as "fajin" (発勁) in pinyin, a term used in Chinese martial arts that involves use of internal energies and explosive force. "Hakkei" is the term's on'yomi reading.

In this attack's case, the pinyin name of this technique would be "Shuang Fajin", with "Shuang" being written with 雙 instead of 双 in Traditional Chinese.
