How about a side kick to the groin? You can lean back as you're doing it (removing your head), you can give the guy something else to think about (pain), and you can push him out of the way/to the ground with the kick.
Thats good, but if by chance u miss, his foot will fly by your head , touch ground and then if hes smart he'll come right back up with a heel kick.

Re: round house kick about to hit your head

Saji,

That's a great move only if you can move in fast enough to avoid the extension of the kick. Otherwise you're going to have a broken hand/forearm, and a concussion.

Matching their rotation as you enter is all you realisticly have time for. Don't worry about catching or blocking it. Move past it, and raise and extend your hands (like hyshi undo) to keep their balance and weight back. From there, there are many throws and techniques (koshi, irimi, kaiten, kube shimi, uchi mata, if any of their hands or arms come up you have ikkyo through gokkyo, etc..), and you're in a much safer position.
If you stand there and stop or block them, they now are going to do something else, not to mention you've stopped all of their energy, something you should be using against them.

Just some more ramblings to think about....


Joe

A common question in most martials dojo

What would one do if there is a round house kick about to hit one's head with full intention and force?
Most techniques taught against yokomenuchi will work on a roundhouse kick, although the outcome may be weird and often dangerous for uke. Moving in and in the direction of the kick's momentum is usually good.

Here's one move: Let's say that you are in a left stance and uke is delivering a right roundhouse. Step with your right foot forward and a bit to your right toward uke and in the direction of the kick's momentum. Tenkan, bringing up both hands. Left should protect your head. Don't think block, because if you do you will tend to draw the arm back back first and you don't have time. Just get the hand up. If you move correctly, the impact should not be hard. The right hand should come up behind uke's leg (since you've moved in, this should be closer to the knee than the foot) and trap it. Just hang on with relaxed arms and start backing up in a small circle, as if you are trying to back your butt into uke, leaning back slightly to put some tension on uke's leg (i.e. pull with your body, not your arms). Be very careful with this technique as the fall is likely to be awkward and potentially dangerous for uke.

Shomenate is a good move. In fact, if you catch somebody in the process of throwing a high roundhouse kick, you pretty much just need to bump into them anywhere to knock them over. If you catch a kick, you usually want to do something with the leg immediately--either throw it somewhere to off-balance them or even better throw them with the leg. Somebody who is agile enough to try to kick you in the head could draw back and deliver a second kick very fast with the same leg, or leap up in the air and try to kick you with the other foot or grab you and throw you with their legs.
