Kagura is a power type character who uses stances to crush the opponent. His long reaching normal attacks keep the opponent at bay, then he counters using his various stances once the enemy offensive is shut down. At mid-range, use standing C or crouching C. Both have very long range, allowing you to control space while staying out of the opponent's reach.
During standing C or crouching C, always try charging with ← or ↙. If successful, cancel from the normal attack into Dragon Spirit. After firing Dragon Spirit, dash after it to close distance. The A version Dragon Spirit movement is compact and easy to use, but if you're at a longer distance, the B version is better as it provides more attacks. Also, it's effective to connect from a C attack to ↓ + D → Dragon's Blade. If the C attack hits, this will become a combo, and even if it's guarded, you won't get counterattacked easily.
Against opponents who use lots of projectiles from a distance, use Sky Dragon's Strike to resist projectiles and charge in. Once close using Sky Dragon's Strike, connect to ↓ + D and either the middle attack Dragon Strike or the low attack Dragon's Blade.
You can jump cancel from ↓ + B, then immediately after jumping use Dragon's Dance to break crouch guards. A key point is to continue to input ↗ during → + B, so practice this.
When under pressure from the opponent, Dragon's Ascent is effective. The B version is invulnerable to jump attacks, making it suited as an anti-air counterattack. The C version is completely invulnerable, so use it when attacked from the ground.
