One guy in my class has apparently done some Kickboxing or Muay Thai, and his roundhouse is like, watch me break your ribs.

If he closes the distance to get his punches he can definitely get his kick and the RH is like his favorite.
Ofcourse being evasive and slippery is key but when that kick is thrown what should you do? How would defend against it if it can't be avoided in the first place?

If you block it with your shin wear shin guards at first. Blocking it with your shin(raising your lead up) is the best way to block it. Don't step straight back or you will take a second kick as well. Your shins will get used to it after a while. I hate to say it but I think it's called conditioning.

Avoid it or stuff it.

As a las resort check it with your shin. It might hurt, but it beats you leg becoming non-functional.

when you say shin - do you mean the bone? if you take on the bone then you'll probably loose out since he'll received some conditioning to his RH and you are basically stationary.

try take his RH on the calfs, thighs by lifting your leg up and push turning into his RH so the contact is on bigger area and he hasn't fully unleash his kick.

Sometimes a very effective way to deal with a roundhouse is to close the distance from your opponent. If you are able to get into the clinch nice and quick, then the roundhouse will have no power. Remember that the kick has the most turning force at its extremity, so the nearer to the thigh you block, the less power his kick will have.

Blocking with your shin can be used when there is no other option, but I would advise making sure you don't need to do it too often.

Didn't some guy a few hundred years ago teach it

I am sure this fact is pretty obvious to anyone who has studied physics at a basic level.

Surprising not to see anyone mention the tackle. It may not be permitted in the dojo but on the streets, well, there you have it.

Close the gap. Work the clinch if you arent allowed to fully grapple.

Work the jab. A lot. Keep him defensive. If he is worried about the constant flurry of punches coming at his face then he will be less likely to attack.

Once you have him pressed keep on him. If your advancing on him and then you step back to retreat he is about to hit you.

Front kick his hip. A lot of Muay Thai guys, not all, but alot of them come from way out to do this kick. If you have a front kick thats fast then kick the top of his hip bone. The force of his swing and your push is going to hurt. And it'll stop the kick.

Trying to absorb or check the attack is the last option. Simply because you are still taking impact. Impact that eventually can lead to injury.

Yeah, I use that sometimes, it's a great way to catch your opponent off guard. It's pretty easy to throw as well. Although, I'm not sure how much damage it does, I find I use it more as a jamming kick.
