How do you check a leg kick?

How do you check a leg kick? What's the technique behind it? I am not training yet (hopefully Muai Thai though real soon) but I've always been curious what is actually happening when you "check" a kick.

Lif the leg that the kick is coming at and point you foot up which makes you leg muscle tight take it right on your shin and hopefully you break their shin (best case scenario)

lift you leg. lot less impact that way and it hurts your opponent just as much if not more as they hurt you.

Lift the leg, left the leg, blah blah blah. Like that's the only way to check a kick.

Turn your foot towards the kick and lean into it. That's right, lean right the hell in there. Kicking the front of an angled thigh does nothing, that's the first thing Rich taught me. Well, second. Whatever.

And now, you're inside his range, he's off balance, and you've got forward momentum. Just for god's sakes, keep your hands up.


Oh, and post this in the striking forum.

A straight punch to the face is the best way to check a leg kick.

You have to lift up the leg which is being targeted first obviously. Then you have to turn your leg so your shin contacts the kicker's shin. It's important not to block the kick with the soft part of your leg.
