I tend to use more body movement to avoid their strikes and as they start to bring it back I blast. I don't use destructions all that much, a litte bit but normally when I block I use a variation on the crazy monkey blocking system. Another thing Ido is, imgine opening your hands in front of you at face level, thumbs touching ad extending forward a bit (sort f like the Spear). I use that against most jabs and straight rights/lefts.
I do include a lot of fast, low front and thigh kicks to set up the blast as well. Fo example if they use a straight right I'll maybe deflect with that Spear thing (with a slight side step usually), shift to my back foot and thow a low front kick and blast off tht.
I don't really seek out destructions, but if they happen than great. They work fine if you connect but that canbe tough to pull off.
My thigh kick is usually with my front leg unless I'm trying to actually hurt their thigh. If I blast off a kick the kick is mostly a distraction. I use a lot of different things for my entries I see no reason to just go for destructions honestly.

I believe the cornerstone of JKD is the ability to intercept. That is what many of the top JKD instructors explained to me when I interviewed them. You can check out some of the interviews I've done with top JKD instructors at http://www.JKDnewsletter.com

Anyone tried a MT cut kick against a SB?

I wouldn't recommend any kick to counter a SB. Straight blast is all about forward pressure directed at the opponent center line. What's more important SB must be done at the right moment. Immediately following a destruction.
Lifting your leg while being on the receiving end of an SB will take you off balance making it easier for the guy Straight Blasting you.

This of course is the first 2 methods coming out of the RAT fight model. The point here is not to trade blows. It's about putting an immediate end to a physical altercation.

But if your just sparring trading blow for blow then I suppose the guy is not throwing his SB after a destruction or interception. Then I suppose you could counter with a cut kick. But then again this isn't really a SB done properly.

Storm,

I checked out the link to your gym. That place looks sick. And I can't believe how low the gym fee's are. I've never seen such low rates for a top of the line facility like that. How is the owner expected to stay afloat? His bills must be high. I want a studio just like that.

I know what you're getting at and the difference with the cut kick is that, you first bring your lead foot slightly closer (the movement is at an angle) closer to your rear foot, step of line with the rear kick and THEN actually kick (when you're off to the opponents side). That's the only kick I can see working against a SB.

As for our gym being able to stay up with those rates, I suppose it has something to do with the fact that the guy who actually owns the place (my instructor rents from him which helps too I, we bring in a whole different group of people which equals more money) makes bank as an anesthesiologist.

My instructor only needs 25 students to pay the rent (which is easy I think he has close to that now and he's only been officially open for a few weeks). My instructor does fine for himself thanks to the massive amount of reffing he does, the occasional fights (he won 3 out of 5 fights last week in Georgia)and he just got off 10 months in Afghanistan so you can bet he has tons of money to blow from that. Perfect time to start something like this. I'm loving the place. If circumstances permit I'll be here for a good long while.

I gotta tell you (and this has nothing to do with countering the SB)...I rarely do the straight blast anymore, preferring instead to do the boxing blast. And then it's only at certain times; such as when my opponent is trying to escape the clinch. The boxing blast can be used to safely regain the clinch, which moving forward with "cover fire". Since a person is moving backward (backing out of the clinch), this is the perfect time for it.
