Counter to a block and trap of the kicking leg

This one is interesting. Mike blocked the front kick, then loaded up for a right-hand counter to the body. Look at what I did with the block:
1. Mike blocks the front kick, then sweeps it upward with his hand to keep me off balance.

2. Instead of letting him knock my leg down, or turn me, I use the momentum of the block (which was done very well, BTW) to turn me.

3. I plant the left leg, which was blocked. Mike has stepped forward with his left and throws a counter right hand.

4. I chamber, and fire the turning back kick under his outstretched arm into the extended ribs.

5. Using excellent control, I push instead of blasting, but you can see the potential pain! I love it!
