The user crosses both of their arms to protect their upper-body area, with the inner forearm facing outward, absorbing even the heaviest punches. The arms make either a form of a plus or an X. The plus is tighter and protects the frontal area more completely. The user can rush forward with the guard to get into their favoured range.

It is the strongest guard in boxing[1], being able to block guard breakers such as the Tsubame Gaeshi.[2] Due to the arm positions, the guard makes it difficult to throw punches, however, it makes it easier for the user to focus on their legs.

The guard also leaves the body susceptible to body blows (in the X form), liver blows (in the plus form), and leaves the face open for hooks (both forms). A way to compensate for this is by bobbing and weaving.
