Hand position was always drilled into me by my dad growing up. He would always tell me to have them slightly higher no matter the situation because you never know when shtf. So to me it’s just natural to keep them a little higher. Plus if your a little off guard and need to cover in a hurry you would just throw your hands up real quick and bring your chin down similar to the startle flinch taught by Tony Blauer with the SPEAR system. He even states when ever possible have your hands a little higher. I’m not sure if it’s just a general rule of thumb but it does help you react quicker.
