1. (Jump in attack) --> character specific combo --> HD --> character specific combo --> juggle combo
2. (Jump in attack) --> character specific combo --> instant HD special move --> Neo Max
Example 1 is what you eventually want to work up to. Example 2 is my short cut to get you started.
What is an instant HD special move? Some moves can be performed by pressing the HD button instead of the correct button during a combo. This will perform the special move and put you in HD at the same time. I place the HD in the traditional Street Fighter roundhouse kick button position for ease of use.
Mai's cartwheel elbow move is an example:
- Close heavy attack --> hcf + HD button (instant HD special) --> Neo Max or anything you want
Kensou's rekkas also work:
Close heavy --> qcf + HD button (instant HD special) --> qcf + P --> Neo Max or anything you want
Figuring this out reminded me of the first time I performed a hadoken intentionally back in SF2. I was doing fine online way before I mastered this. It's such easy "technology" and it makes you so much more dangerous.

1. close heavy --> hcf +HD:
--> HD cancel qcb, hcf + K (DM) --> HD cancel Neo Max
--> HD cancel qcb + P --> HDC hcf + K(heavy?) --> HDC (qcb, hcf + K DM --> HDC...) Neo Max
If any of the cartwheels carry the opponent into the corner you can work in ryuu enbu shenanigans.
1. close heavy --> qcf +HD --> qcf P --> HDC dp + P(EX) --> HDC qcf +P(EX) chain (2 - 4 punches) --> HDC dp + P(EX) --> Neo Max (cannot be buffered. must be entered in it's entirety) or qcf, hcb + P DM --> HDC Neo Max
This one is not nearly as bad as it looks since you can cut it short with a Neo Max at several points. I just posted this longer version Kensou looks cool comboing 3 versions of his rapid gut punches into his Neo Max.
This combo maxes out at only about 700 damage when you pump meter into it, but it doesn't require juggling. Using the EX version of dp + P and adding Kensou's throw DM before the Neo Max gives you tons of time to cancel. This combo gets easier the more meter you spend on it. How about that?
