Fighting as Monica: She’s one of the easier fighters to play and is good for beginners. Just stay on your feet and trade blows. Her Hook is her best weapon, mix with the Jab for a head attacking game and finish with the Rocket Punch. If you find yourself Blocking and Countering the body, follow with the Hammer Punch.
Fighting against Alvarado: Kicking types might take their chances trading blows with her, especially if you can get the Block + Counter working against her. Ground types will need to take her down, obviously.
