I think it was Asai who ducked through front kicks in Nakayama's Best Kararte Kumite series. He suggested practicing by ducking lunge punches with a prepratory down block going in.

I never tried it against a front kick, but ducking has worked great for me on the RH. The kicker is really--REALLY--surprised when you do it. I've never pulled out their supporting leg on my way through, but it would seem the natural thing to do although it would probably injure someone on the hard wood floors we trained on then.
