I've always wondered this- how effective are leg based atemi versus shootkickers? Couldn't placing yourself that low relative to an attacker, and moving your face and body straight towards the legs, which can be used as VERY deadly weapons, be a really bad decision? If I saw someone shooting for me, I'd knee him REALLY hard in the face, and then use his somewhat less tight arms to do an osae waza. That is, if I was any good.
