And that is why hands should be easier to hit than the face. The hand will generally be much closer to the enemy than your face.

We also have some pretty strongly inbuilt flinch reflexes for our face/head. Not quite as strong for our hands (which a trained fighter will have mostly overcome due to training).
Feel free to steal, borrow, fold, spindle, mutilate any rule, advantage, etc I come up with it.
