Wait, what is 'menetski.' Is that what you call a punch to the face?
"Me" in japanese literally means eyes. So a punch to the eyes or face.
The term is actually "mentsuki" 面突き -- in this case, a punch to the face -- and does not refer to the eyes.

"Mu" can mean ribs.
The term is actually "mune" 胸 which basically refers to the chest area. It doesn't refer to "ribs," per se (that would be "abara" 肋).
