Default Off hand unarmed parry

Could you confirm that a parry with an unarmed skill like karate judo or brawling does not get any "off hand" malus?
It seems implicit in some skill description but not explicitly stated.

Thanks!

Yes, it’s explicitly called out that you can party or strike with either hand under unarmed striking skills on Adventurers page 93.

well, it speaks of punching and not of parrying..then only under the unarmed striking skills, not the unarmed grappling skills...

To quote Using the Off Hand (Exploits, p. 36):
You parry with the "off" hand at -2 unless using Main-Gauche or an empty hand.
