A friend of mine wants to do some imprint training with her 6 week old filly. The problem she is having is she can”t get near the filly, and when she does manage to get close, the filly kicks at her. Do you have any suggestions as to what she could do with the filly to get the filly to stop kicking and let my friend work with her?

If I have one kicking at me I will generally use an extension of my hand like a long lunge whip or something. Watch these videos and see if you get an idea. You would have to modify it by having the mare and foal both in the area but this might give you some ideas.
