New Street Fighter 5 Character Laura Specializes In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
According to Michael Martin of IGN.com, Street Fighter 5 is reportedly getting an all-new Brazilian female character.
Japanese video game magazine Famitsu has posted images online of Laura performing various moves and grappling with Ryu. Based on the images and the types of strikes and holds she’s using, it appears her fighting style might be some form of Brazilian jiu-jitsu as opposed to the series’ other Brazilian mainstay Blanka, who practices his version of capoeira.
It does appear Laura might share some similarities with Blanka as she also appears to have some lighting-based attacks, including what appears to be some sort of projectile.
Clearly Laura practices No-Gi ((Ahem))
