I suggest studying King's frame data to know how to punish his moves. Learn to duck his strings like his df21. Breaking throws is specially important against King. Also know that stepping right is good against him.

ESP has a really good point. It's really hard to face king because there's no moves that king is weak against. Which means, having the solid defense and punishing him is the key most of time. One more thing I would like to add is that sometimes you have to duck ws punish kings throws otherwise he's going to keep throwing you with those 50/50 mixup shining wizard with giant swing. You can't keep guessing that all the time where he's getting away with murder. Once you do that, he'll try to adjust to hopkicks which you should again make the guest to block and punish him accordingly. Trying to put risk/reward in your favor is a lot of work but it has to be done.

What you can do to screw with his mind is to learn the instant running 2. That can go along way fighting anyone. Also find ways to land ss4. Very scary since it's built-in evasive, +3 on hit, does a lot of damage, and only -11 on block. He's not going to do anything other than back dashing when getting hit by that.

Also try to keep yourself at distance of 2 playing against king. Throws and hopkicks won't reach and claudio excel in that distance with long range moves and hopkick to wiff punish. 50% if Claudio's game is to bait people to wiff so he can hopkick them

It is actually done with db+1+2. I covered it in my STB video but you can either back dash or side stepping is your best option.
