NOT striking someone comes with two important pros in my book. Your not busting up your hand AND legal wise (correct me if i'm wrong) your on more stable ground. "I never hit him"
Not a correction, it is mostly easier, if you can say "I never hit him". It is just not always sufficient.
I was just told about an incident, where a tiny female jujutsuka was attack by a huge strong man. She was sued and fined for violently injuring him.
The (German) judge admitted a self defense situation, but as the guy had two broken arm and one broken leg, he could not understand the SD situation still applicable, when the third bon was broken. Well obviously one after the other and not an unlucky breakfall.
