How to Play Jin in Tekken 7: Fundamentals

Before you focus on the fancy stuff, it is important to have your core skillset completely refined. Jin is one of the few characters that can adapt to nearly the entire roster of the game with ease. But to do that, you need to be good with your movement and combat skills. 

Learn to pay close attention to your opponents to accurately predict what they are about to do. While there are players out there who might argue juggling is not important for Jin, it is a skill you absolutely need to master to take full advantage of the character. While it might be challenging if you are completely new to the game, you should learn how to juggle and take advantage of maps. Building up momentum and applying pressure are very important to mastering Jin correctly and these are skills that you need to develop even as a new player.
