I took over the kick shield and held it while being pounded by enthusiastic green belt doing a sliding side kick. However, rather than continually getting a foot sunk into my ribs (even with shield), just as foot blade is accelerating in the air, I reach out and behind the weapon with a reverse open palm and draw it quickly towards the outer side of my hip. My eyes never leave his chest. Rotating the hip towards the other side means the side kick sails easily past with little effort. Timing is everything.
