Starting, TDC, no valves open, how do you know?

Does anyone know how you can guarantee this will not happen on a dead engine start?
It happens to me about once or twice a season on the start line, and it happened again yesterday... still fresh in my head:mad:

The surprising thing is I have never had trouble kicking the motor over from that condition. I am 205lbs though.
I usually kick start mine most of the time just for fun and practice instead of using the Estart... I usually roll the motor over slowly until I find the higher resistance of TDC and then give it a swift kick.
