How to dodge and parry on Sifu:

  • To dodge, you’ll need to press the R2 button and the directional stick in the area opposite the one your opponent is attacking. This move won’t work with some enemy attacks, like throws, if you’re too close.
  • To lock/protect, press and hold the L1 button. Keep in mind that you can only take so much damage when in this mode, and that your guard can be broken, as indicated by the bar near the top of the screen.
  • Press L1 as soon as your opponent is about to land their attack to interrupt their combo. You’ll also notice when they change their attack stance as their limbs light up.Deflect/Parry is the most difficult of all these moves as it requires precise timing and location, otherwise you will get hit. Certain movements cannot be stopped with a parry either.
