Fighting Games

Anybody play fighting games? Growing up , I could never get into them. I was a button smasher and that doesn’t work so I became frustrated and quit. Recently I have found myself drawn into watching a lot of videos. I can’t explain it but I want to learn how to play. It is still very frustrating. I have Mortal Kombat 11 on the Xbox and it is hard. I find myself spending a lot of time in training and still can’t pull it off but I am more committed now than I was in my younger days. I was just wondering if there was anybody here that enjoyed fighting games and wouldn’t mind taking me under their wing and playing /help out my old ass?
