kanji for, and meaning of, suki

I usually take suki to mean an opening for a technique. What is the kanji for, and the meaning of, suki?

From a short search on-line, http://jisho.org/kanji/details/%E9%9A%99, I got 隙 with the possible meanings

1: gap; space;
2: break; interlude; interval;
3: chink (in one's armor, armour); chance; opportunity

with 隙 made from the parts
小 thousand
阡 small
日day/japan/sun

Is this the character usually used? If so how do the the three symbols combine to mean suki?
