The standard defense is to raise your knee for defense of kicks up to waist, raise or lower the bokken to defend / blend with kicks above the waist, or to learn to not be there when they arrive.

If you should be at the end of a kick, then I would say you need to blend and use the momentum of the opposing force to take away balance and move on to one of your Aikido techniques.
