In this video, I demonstrate one way to block and counter a front kick. Gedan soto uke (outside low block) is used, followed by a counter attack. This drill, without the takedown, is in my curriculum for the 8th, 7th and 6th kyu tests. It's a compliant drill for beginning students and is great for developing good habits. This is good practice for those that teach and practice "fighting" skills. Obviously, this is only one layer of training. Resistance should always be a part of training regardless of rank.
