Telegraphed kicks are easier to leg catch it's true

I've never fallen over from a missed kick ever nor have my sparring opponents (though I suppose what's a miss or potential hit for me isn't for GURPS). I've had my leg grabbed and tipped over but that's another thing. Perhaps allow a bonus to the dex roll to stand up given it isn't as stressful as a real fight? Doesn't feel right though as the sparring is pretty intense.
A Miss in Gurps is when you loose your balance kicking, not that you failed to connect the kick with your sparring partner (which is normally a dodge or parry).

I've seen my share of falls and sprains from people while kicking a punch bag. Beginners and even intermediate kickboxers and nak muays, while trying to perform simple side or front kicks or sometimes while doing spinning kicks, jumping or not.

I think that some of that might just be critical failures.

I'm pretty sure I've fallen over just walking to class.
