I think that aikido-type moves (blend, redirect) work as well against someone who really knows how to kick as well as someone who really knows how to punch. The ukemi for a kick is a lot more difficult, with more potential for injury early on--we study kicks only very rarely (like once or twice every few years) probably for this reason, plus there's so much more "standard" stuff to work on.
