    Distancing.
    Make him miss then counter with swift kick.

    Also , don't keep weight on the front leg .
    Keep a slight bend in the knee , heel raised and be ready to shoot out a teep . ( kinda like in the video games / bad movies but not as dramatic)

    Makes that technique ineffective .

    Agree. With distancing being most important. Which means footwork,which means not standing stationary in front of the guy. Angle off and counter.

    I throw this kick constantly in sparring and the most painful way I've had it blocked is bending the knee and lifting the foot off the floor checking it almost kneeing like a strike also if the kick is stronger than you expected then your knee definitely won't get hyperflexed

    The funny part about elbow.
    Don't back up, same goes with someone backing up on a spinning back fist.
    If you give more distance you increase impact.

    You actualy have to get closer to minimise impact.
    (not saying to just take elbow, explainning a normal reaction that make things worst.

    A good counter, rush in, knee to ribs, plexus, belly.

    Good counter on a spinning move is to rush in.
    Backing up makes it worst.
