|Alternate Name(s)||"The Swallow"|
|Similar technique(s)||Flicker Jab|
What makes the Hien different from usual jabs comes from the fact the left is not being pulled in completely. It stops halfway, then abruptly flies back at the opponent. Arm, elbow, and wrist rotation is applied so the punch can change trajectory; depending on how they are bent, multiple variations could be made like left jab to hook, to upper and immediately to another left jab.
Strengths and WeaknessesEdit
The speed at which these different punches can be linked together can be astounding. Feinting between different punches isn't rare in boxing, but you normally can't do it with one arm. It is much less complicated to read feints when it's just about discerning a right from a left.
Mike Elliot noticed that the user has to stomp down on the ground in order to add power to the Hien, so by glancing at their lead foot, he could tell when it was coming.
