what do you do when someone catches your leg while you try to kick them? this has always confused me.

and if there is a move for it, what is it called so that i can search for it on youtube, i'd like to see it in action.

thanks.

Context, please. Tournament? General self-defense, or what?

P.S. It is advisable to cross train in a grappling art before attempting to learn any of the techniques mentioned, for safety reasons.

Well I throw a lot of kicks and they get caught a LOT. I have found that going in with the caught foot seems to work the best. When your opponent catches your kick, they will either want to keep hold of it and throw strikes, or bring you down. However, if you get close to the opponent after he/she grabs your kick, you can get in some good strikes. This will prevent them from having time to get in a good takedown.

Tournaments- If its point sparring, you would get the point for hitting them.

Self defense- If you get in fast enough, you could lay down enough punches to end the fight. Or you could use your momentum to take them down, with you.

There are going to be a lot of questions that come up, even when you are a black belt. No one knows everything. That is what this site is for, to find out information that other people know. So dont worry if you come up with some problems...

Movies arent the best source to get new moves. Kicking with your free leg isnt smart. Once you kick, how are you going to land? Your not, your going to fall. Once you fall your done. Then they can jump on your and throw punches.
If your idea is to kick with the free leg and land with the caught leg, that wouldnt work either. If they kept hold of it you would fall. Even if you manage to get it out of the grasp, you wouldnt have time to land. So I dont recommend trying that...

Its a good question! If someone catches my leg and doesnt act on it fast enough, like whitedragon said i like to come close to them and let off a few strikes, afterall they now only have 1 hand to defend with as the other has hold of ur leg. Also, depending on how tight a hold they have of your leg you can pull it back to coil up again.
