I agree.

Question. Is using the "lower cross hand block" really aikido anyway? Sounds like force against force to me.

Another question. What if the first kick is a fake? What I found worked very well was to fake a fairly low front kick, not too fast (or slow) to bring the arm(s) down, then to quickly change to a roundhouse kick to the side of the head, or even to a hook kick to the other side of the head. If you're fast, it usually works like a charm.
