We probably all know the general story of Moment 37 and the famous Daigo Parry that displayed a serious talent for Street Fighter blocking. But for our second episode of Kotaku Compete, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at the feelings and the people behind the moment, and how it’s affected them since.

This piece originally appeared 9/17/15.

Hear from the players themselves—Justin Wong (Chun-Li) and Daigo Umehara (Ken)—on what their experiences were like both leading up to and following one of competitive gaming’s most thrilling moments.



Look for a new episode next Thursday.

Kotaku Compete is an original series created and produced by Kotaku and Gawker Media’s video team. Production funding was provided by Honey Nut Cheerios.
