Low kicks in a fight are always dangerous. Usually in randori (free-style) situations, they are running around and that prevents kicking.
If you've decided you're studying a martial art, then you should be training with all types of people in all weight classes. Just like training on both left and right sides.
Only in combat sports do you have the luxury of training for one weight class, can turn your back on an opponent or limit your training to one or two techniques.
