    I had one thought that I'd like to try out after thinking about it for awhile.

    - pretend to step in to kick, baiting him to throw the side kick
    - step towards his back side
    - right cross to chin or chop his supporting leg

    Haven't tried it on a live opponent yet, so don't know if it'll work.

    Thanks for the tips. Just so I understand you correctly, you're advocating doing the same counter to a teep right? I don't understand why yet, but it didn't seem to work as well.

    BTW it was just a sparring session, not a tournament.

    The problem is in order to even get to box him, I have to first get past his side kick. Without a safe strategy to do that I'm just eating kick after kick.

    My natural reflex was to just move back and wait for his leg to land, then low kick his leg, but it's quite dangerous as I'm just moving back in a straight line.

    The high, fast ones can be troublesome. In my fight against Jennifer Han I was getting eaten up bad with push kicks to the chest (my right boob was sore as hell after that fight). I think one good way of dealing with those is to lean back in anticipation for them, taking away most of the impact (it's hard to get as much penetration on the higher straight kicks) and catch the foot as they try to bring it back. Maybe not the best way, but I see a lot of people using this method pretty successfully.

    I would agree with kidspatula that getting offline is the best idea. There's not alot you can do with the higher kicks except get out of the way.

    Let him start his sidekick and move to his outside and in (sort of a diagonal movement) so that you're out of the way but still getting closer to him. He should essentially have his back to you and you can grab his shoulders and sweep his supporting leg out from under him. You can also grab the kicking leg as you move, which will buy you a second more to sweep him and allow you to let him land a little more gently, if you're so inclined.

    Another thing you can do is to slightly move one of your elbows so that the point of it catches the side of their foot or ankle. It isn't going to stop the kick, but it is going to hurt and might dampen some of their enthusiasm for kicking. Catching an elbow will give them something to think about the next time they want to kick.

    If it is to the body I either evade or use a leg pump - hopefully you catch there foot between your knee and elbow and break it, if it is up high best bet is to just evade, use your angles.

    Making a big step forward and to the outside, leaning back a bit while kicking the supporting leg is also pretty solid though it requires mo betta timing then scooping or just maintaining circular movement all the time.

    I don't really see this happening too often.

    I agree, it does not happen often. It is nice when it does though - wishful thinking
