That's realllllly good advice. Taking low kicks is never a great idea but checking them improperly is worse than absorbing and countering. Bite down on that mouthguard, put weight on that lead leg and let that heavy overhand fly against a fancy kicker and you'll catch him eventually.
I would strongly advise agains this. putting weight on your lead leg and just taking a kick is a horrible idea and will have you unable to walk after 2-3 kicks. You are much better learning how to check or avoid kicks properly, and lets face it. If you cant check kicks, you have no business being in a ring anyway.

That being said, good luck
