wake ups?!?!

idk how or why but i hold back when my character is getting up to block and i get hit with jump in kicks and DPs all day? is there a way around this? or am i just a retard and u cant block while doing a wake up.

Block earlier and don’t hit buttons. You might be accidentally getting a jump or backdash.

You know about blocking jump-in attacks as overheads and crouching attacks as lows, yes?
