Not as Jiu Jitsuey as I would have liked. But it’s been pointed out to me that I wouldn’t think a Street Fighter was Brazilian Jiu Jitsu enough unless they could hold you down for 99 seconds and make the timer run down, ha ha.
Confirmed on Capcom’s Japanese website to be Sean’s older sister (姉), and practicing the family style of Matsuda Jiu Jitsu.
Presumably it was taught to her by her Japanese grandfather, as it was canon he was teaching Sean Jiu Jitsu.
-From before meeting Ken did he have sure killing technique experience?
A. From the time as a child being taught jujutsu from his Japanese descent grandfather, from the time he was 10 years old he was firing up for soccer and basketball and other sports.
-SF3 Q&A from Gamest SF3 Fanbook
As a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter myself, here’s a comparison I put together between Laura’s moves and actual Jiu Jitsu.
Family tree found here.
I just realized, that there are now two brazilian characters in Street Fighter who can conjure electricity. CAPCOM must think Brazilians are some shocking people…
BTW, do you still need help for the G-File? And if you want to incorporate SFV into it, I would be happy to help you out!
I think Ono only gave her electricity to trick people into thinking it would be Blanka, too bad she got leaked and ruined his joke!
I’m not sure, I have been doing some thinking lately and it looks like they are changing things up a whole lot in 5. Finally making big changes to how characters look or play where they had been pretty static for years before. Not quite sure how 5 will work right now. It may just be added to the G-File, or I may make it a separate book including updated versions of the main cast (ryu, ken, etc) since everyone is so different now.
Confirmed older sister.
Updated with last name confirmation
Updated with art, official video link, and Matsuda confirmation.
Added a new YouTube link since the old one got pulled.
Looks like Maximilian removed the video, maybe another leak we weren’t supposed to see yet? No idea what’s going on with it.
