I don't think she has a catch-all no meter option, but I might be wrong.

After airthrowing in the corner, land short dash 2a6b (2a catch no tech, 6b hit neutral tech, turn into 4b if the opponent forward tech). Timing is pretty strict.

All you really need is 5b5c. If they tech either way, 5b stays out long enough to punish both and hit confirm into 5c. If they don't tech, you get OTG into tincat. Too easy.

@Xianoir

You can't catch people teching neutral with the same timing of 5b5c that would catch people teching backwards.

@Seyluun

Yes, I remember reading about this tech punish way back in MBAC days, but never played enough Len to learn to do it properly.

I would love to learn how to do it then.

Can you record a combo with your tech punish into the dummy, then manually tech to all three directions while the dummy tech punishes you? Then upload it so I can see the timing.

Why would you tech backwards in a corner?
It's not about timing your attack so that you don't have to work for an easy tech punish. It is always going to be based off reaction of where they tech.
After airthrow, just wait. If they tech, you get punish, until they learn to stop teching. When they finally do, you get free Oki. It's not hard to react techs and punish with 5C, even that is more than enough for an easy tech punish.
If you got extremely good reactions, then just buffer 236 after you land, and press C if you see them tech.
Len is known for her tech punishes, that's why no one techs against her. It's also conditioning, and part of her mind games, but it's not free.

I am fully aware that you can react to techs, and  the mindgames associated with them. That's why I mentioned what can be used to punish each case in one of my previous posts. What I was looking for was the option select to punish all directions, which apparently is dash 2a6b.

H-Len combos? I dug around and I found a bnb for her with the tk236{b}: 5a6a5c2b5b4b tk236{b} sj.bc dj.bc AT, but I also read there's a throw loop that's essential. Unfortunately most of the combos in videos I've found with H-Len are improvised or something. (Also, seems to drop if don't omit the 5b; also struggle to get all the hits of the aerial portion.)

Any other important info also appreciated; seeing how far I can get with this cat... before I drop her and then attempt to pick up another.

Corner loop is something like 5A4B 2A(whiff) j.B IAD Airthrow.

As for combos... Go for old school Double Ice combos! Aw yeah, Len's the best. But really, Len combos are so freestyle. You can do anything and have it work. I'm pretty sure 5C(4) 5A6AA 5A6AA tkj.236[B] Aircombo works, which is hilarious and looks badass. Also, H Moon TK Ice is overpowered.

I'm having a lot of trouble getting the rethrow combo down with H.

Is there a delay timing on the 5a link?  Do the amount of reps change depending on the starter?  Difficulty changes between each character?

I'm just going with this route:
(Starter hit) 2B * 4B jB 66 AT 5A(1) 4B 2A(whiff) jB 66 AT 5A(1) 4B 2A(whiff) jA jC dj jB jC.
Throw 5C(3) AT and then the same as above.
* = delay

Main trouble I'm having is getting the jB after the first rethrow.  Seems like the character's too high for it to reach or something.  If I do happen to get it, the 5a on the next rep is difficult.

I haven't played this character in a long time but as far as I can remember you had to delay the airthrow after the airdash a bit or they would end up too high.
