  1. If you mean the jumping on the enemy and throwing them then,
    First you need to block and when the enemy is stunned jump on them and you get a chance to pounce on them and throw them anywhere you want
    HOPES this helps

  2. In order to parry an attack, you have to hold the block button (RT) just as an enemy is about to attack at close range. They should recoil after their attack lands, meaning you've successfully parried their attack.

    After parrying an attack, you can then pounce on the enemy you've parried by pressing A right after the parry. Pressing A on its own at this point will make Afro jump off without doing anything further, whereas pressing A while holding the Left Stick in any direction with make Afro throw the pounced enemy in the desired direction (instantly killing them as they land), and pressing the X, Y or B button will make Afro perform an execution move.

    It might be worth noting that some enemies (e.g. the armoured Samurais and electrified (blue clothed) Androids) can't be pounced on, as Afro will only end up getting hurt. Also, the club-wielding Giants and some of the boss-type enemies can't be parried OR blocked.

  3. Right as they launch their attack, hold RT. Some enemies, such as Daimyo, and Kuma, have a shimmer on their blade that lets you know when to hold the trigger. Hope this helps.

  4. Press RT at the exact moment your opponent swings at you to parry them or you can keep spamming RT and 90% of the time it works, then you can pounce em ( A Button) and finish em with X, B or Y
