FoN's Tip of the Day #9 takes a look at juggles and okizeme in SoulCalibur VI. In SoulCalibur, juggles are shorter than the juggles in other 3D fighters. This is mainly because you can easily apply relatively risk-free pressure on the opponent's wake-up known as "okizeme" (ground game). There's no wake-up kicks or wake-up attacks in SCVI so you can attack the opponent on the ground or on their wake-up basically for free. The only thing to keep in mind is their potential response to your okizeme.

For instance the opponent can ukemi tech roll, block from the ground or try an attack on wake-up. The most common responses will be either lie on the ground and try to block or to perform a tech roll. If the opponent tries to tech roll, utilise a tech trap, which catches and hits tech rolling opponents. If the opponent lies on the ground, either go for a mid-low mix-up or hit them on the ground with a break attack (or a strong ground-hitting attack that isn't unsafe when blocked). If the opponent tries to wake-up attack, hit them with something like a Down-Forward+B / 3B launcher or a quick strong strike to discourage their abare (attacking from disadvantage).
