Atlus released a second tutorial video for Persona 4: Arena, which outlines more advanced mechanics. You can do an air recovery by hitting a button while in mid-air, press A+C do to a quick step, and down plus A+C for a mini-jump.
The key mechanic shown at the end of the clip are skill boosts. These work like EX attacks in Street Fighter IV where you can push both persona attack buttons (C + D) to deal more damage. When Yu attacks with Zio he deals more damage plus shock status if he uses a skill boost. The catch is a skill boost takes up 25 SP.
Persona 4: The Arena has a number of bad status effects like poison (drains HP), rage (disables blocking), and confusion (reverses directional controls).
