Techniques: Super Short Charge

(download video)

This is done with a Stutter Step in the beginning for a shorter charge. To Stutter Step you want to tap Forward on the D-Pad then release and hold Forward. Then tap the Run Button according to Samus's footsteps. There is a total of 3 taps and the Item Switch is used to hopefully help you understand the timing. Remember that these are taps - try not to hold at all on the 1st and 2nd tap - but you can and should hold the Run button on the 3rd tap. This can also be done without a Stutter Step but it would make it slightly less short. Also note that this specific charge was done on flat ground. Hills may slightly change the time of your charge.
