When I hung around Seagal for a while years ago, before he became a movie star.... well anyway... Seagal used to (probably still does) teach stepping on the foot with the entry a lot, but I agree, it really is super dangerous. Also, I think it's tricky, meaning if one were to include it in one's repitoire, I think it would have to be used very strategically, because even though it can limit the ability of the attacker to kick etc., it can also limit the mobility and sense of "openness" of the nage.
