Re: round house kick about to hit your head

Everyone can say what they can or can not do.

I've seen K-1 fight wins with just a round house kick to the thigh over and over and over again.

I have seen people catch the kick and push the kicker to the ground.

I have seen people back up to make the opponent miss.

I have seen people enter and throw.

There are what ifs all over the place.

Seriously, I prefer catching the kick and taking the person to the ground where "I" fight.

But fighting someone that kicks, you never really know which kick or where he's going to kick, so good luck.
I agree, There are many solutions to this situation, mostly depending on ones timing and knowledge. Obviously, one can also fail in the execution and get the kick straight on.

MOVE! That is the first lesson we teach our newbie
Movement and Tai-sabaki are the basis for all M.A. Aikido not excluded. The better one is, the smaller the move he needs to avoid being hit and achieve a successful technique.
