I find Strikers to have too many skills that seem very useful, @A@"
Personally, I think you will want to take skills like Muscle Shift for comboing purposes, Lightning Dance and Beat Drive as your late level attackers, and skills that inflict hit stun and slow with Cancels for comboing purposes. You'll definitely want to grab boxing gloves, because the weapon gives you a chance for stun, I think. Tiger Chain Strike and Tiger Barrage is a nice method to stop your enemy from falling after a dash, giving you a nice window to combo.
I'm just speaking from a Fighter -> Brawler point here, I know hardly anything about Strikers.
