This stance has the user's left arm hanging near the waist while the right arm is closely drawn to the chest area. The low position of the left arm allows it to execute jabs faster. Mashiba combines this style with the Flicker Jab to form a very efficient advantage against most boxers.
However, the stance leaves the left side open. Mashiba relies primarily on his reach to keep in-fighters outside of this range, and uses an Elbow Block to cover his exposed left. Despite this, Makunouchi Ippo managed to break his guard by injuring Mashiba's elbow, sealing off his Hitman Style and Flicker Jab.
