Like his brother Baki, he has since childhood wished to surpass his father Yujiro Hanma in strength and martial ability. His obsession to defeat his father led to extreme overtraining at various fighting gyms which led to the deterioration of his body. He wasn't much more than skin and bones because his body had been damaged by overwork. For example, Jack would punch sandbags for over 12 hours without eating, resting, or even using the restroom. He claimed he will never be able to defeat his father with normal training. After his encounter with the Yujiro-inspired scientist named Dr. John who witnessed Yujiro killing a polar bear. The scientist promises him great results if he tries using a special drug. He received from him a concentrated formula of steroids to match his overtraining and gained immense power in the process and Jack had become even more mentally unstable.

Although he lost all of his teeth, his bite can still damage Izou Motobe when he wear a chain mail made of aramid fibers, which is made for plane and tire. His body is strong enough to surpass drugs, even though he used abnormal amount of drugs. His strength is shown many time in the story: defeating the convict Sikorsky in a telephone box and withstanding his knuckle slash in the underground arena, taking many blows from Mohammad Alai Jr and defeating him, cutting his tongue in the process, fighting with Pickle and making him run away in fear of the only creature that scare him: a wasp.
