Actually the same question was asked by a student to O Sensei. O sensei smiled and said "you try". The student lifted his foot to do a kick. O Sensei stepped on his skirt. The student fell and broke his hip. No more questions about kicks anymore in the dojo.
Interesting story! Do you have a source for it?
I've been to seminars with aikido shihan wherein both kicks are utilized as both uke and nage. Fun stuff.
