[/QUOTE]

Why do you want them to fall hard? Do you have mats?

To block a side kick (assuming you are fighting in a kicking range i.e. medium to long) i find it easiest to move at angles, because of the way a side kick is delivered moving to the outside of the "kicker" is often safer.

The best way to block a side kick in my opinion is to not be on the end of it.
But if you feel like you are going to catch one, protect yourself like you would when some one throws a hook, keep elbow in tight, this will atleast help you absorb the sidekick, without recieving much pain.

Catch the leg, loop your foot behind his standing foot, push forward hard. Down he goes.

Catch the leg and what to do with it depends on the kick that was thrown?

Don't try to block a side kick, move out of the way from side to side rather than stepping back, a matter of fact most counters to kicks should be moving to the side or in a more circular motion. Moving backwards only sets you up for the next kick.

It is a great fallacy to think that it is so easy to catch a kick.
catching a kick is an aquired skill!!!
unless you train hard for it, it will not just appear. you should know how to block a kick so you can have a plan B......instead of getting knocked out on plan A

I would not recommend blocking a kick unless you have VERY huge arms. Mine would definitely snap against most people's kicks.

I far and away prefer getting out of the way as Schanne describes or catching the leg as Chen describes. Goldencrane is right, it takes practice, but it does work.

I don't understand your blocking a kick phylosophy? Instead of induring all that energy and pain why not try to move out of the way or side step. Sure during sparring it's normal to get hit a number of time by kicks but I still try each time to move out of the way or counter with my own kick or takedown.

Goldencrane:
"catching a kick is an aquired skill!!!

Very true, unless you train in that type of fighting. Some Dojo's never teach any kind of counter to a kick, while others will teach you how to take down an opponent with most any kick that is thrown at you. Our Dojo happen to be one that teaches counter moves to most all kick. What I mean by counter moves are takedowns to round kick, back kick, side kickand so on. If your not trained in that area of course it sounds hard but if you do it every time your at the Dojo it become basic, everything is relative.

Schanne
If you read my first post I state that the best way is to avoid the kick altogether, but every karateka should know how to block the kick. there may and will come a time when you may not be able to get out of the way. It is just like a defense against a punch, the best way is to not be there but you better know how to block it!!!!!

You should always know how to block but, blocking is the weakest form of Defense.
