The Eight Strikes are for causing an opponent to feel pain & lose consciousness, they are convenient & quick to throw out, therefore they are all appropriate targets. The Eight No Strikes are without exception linked to life wounding points, if a person isn’t guilty to death then there’s no need to take his life, therefore it is appropriate that they should all be avoided.
