To strike (in a spanking context) means to hit (with the hand or with an implement). Its simple past is struck. The variant striked is not incorrect, but is usually used in other senses such as the mass refusal of employees to perform work. In the passive voice, to be struck (e.g. by lightning) is more common than to be striked.
A strike (noun) is such a hit. The word strike implies a fairly hard hit (with the connotations of a weapon), whereas stroke implies a more moderate hit of carefully gauged intensity.
- He struck her buttocks three times with his open hand.
- The third strike was the hardest.
