Ai Uchi

Simultaneous strikes by both fighters. In competition, no point is awarded to either contestant - the referee brings his fists together in front of his chest. It is sometimes used to mean the simultaneous death of both individuals. Knowing that the opponent's killing technique leaves an opening, you kill him at the same instant.

Pronounced: aye oo-chee
