Chin level Wing Chun guard, although we do a lot of work in wing chun of fighting from a 'neutral' position (in an altercation thats gonna be your most likely position right before you get walloped). If we're sparring tho its good 'ol chin level back up and watch out for those elbows.

any higher than cheekbone level and those big ass gloves impair my vision and/or I wind up getting glove to eyeball action

I voted eyebrow level as there wasn't an option for anything higher. I've been taught crazy monkey so my hands are much higher.
Of course, when I did Aikido, up at chest level was considered very high.Taking responsibility for my actions since 1989

Though I'm not THAT tall I haven't been kicked in the head anytime recently I can remember from a roundhouse kick. Against a karate BB/BJJer, I JUST failed getting out of the way of a fast inside to outside snapping kick when I was taunting though, hahahahaha!

I was taught to have my hands at cheek level, but drop my chin so that it bring my eyebrows down to where the hands are...... in effect, hands at eyebrow level if the chin is down."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

I try to remember to keep my hands chin level at lowest to about cheekbone level, any higher and yes, my big assed gloves block my vision which sucks.
However when throwing combos at anytime other then being pretty fresh, my hands tend to droop, possibly due to my damnedable karate armpit chamber muscle memory.
Anyhow, yeah, getting dropped by a hook is a good reminder to keep your hands up.

When I'm neutral/defensive I keep my hands relaxed and open, palms inward, thumbs touching my eyebrows. The more aggressive I get, the further out forward my hands are.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
