1) throw lots of guard breaks
2) he can hit you from distance, so stand on his toes
3) throw lots of guard breaks
4) have a go of him in training mode to learn the timing on his dodge attack and dodge attack soft feint
5) throw lots of guard breaks

1/Always look for the light finisher
2/Throw GB
3/Punish him on a whiff bash
4/Spam emotes on his dead body (JJ deserve it)😅

The heroe i am doing the best against JJ is Musha on my side but it depends to your playstyle.

You are the Valk guy threads. Valk is not good against JJ.

Don't aprry anything, play very passivly:
1. If you see forward dodge attack (with sf into kick) then dodge it time and counter potential gb.
2. If you see side dodge attack then dodge back, I know it is possible to parry 400ms light feint, but it's very easy to make a mistake, I wouldn't risk.
3. If you see unblockable then just dodge back, his gb after feint will whiff.

Craic's bitesize tips vid has everything you need to know about fighting JJ in a 1v1 with only slightly outdated damage numbers:

thanks for the tips friends! yes I'm the sad Valk guy haha. I'm really trying to play others since valk is too hard but i don't like most play styles of the others. so ill just have to play valk until he gets a buff or until i go insane!! good tips! thanks everyone.

Valk is still good but it depends of the level of your opponents. I would say she is still strong till Plat level.
But against Diamond players and above it is hard to play her.

Try to use her in a different way than most others. Yesterday i fought a rep 49 Valk and totally wreck him with my own valk rep23 i didnt play for 2 months.. because 49 reps or not he was very predictable (too many shield crush, top lights and dash attack bait ..).

But, if i may. If you like Valk maybe you should give a shot at Kensei and Shaolin. You will maybe like them and they are a bit stronger than Valk.

Valk is a machine in skilled hands, one of the few I have real trouble with. Before you say 'oh the punish on the sqeep' IT DOES 35 DAMAGE IF IT LANDS. most can GB for about 25-30

Edit on point if his dodges are giving issues guard the direction he dodges and get ready to dodge the other direction into anything he throws - get some valk deflect in there :)

EDIT: did I mention Guardbreak alot?
