I think the problem is that there are too many styles out there which concentrate on the flowing side of aikido without first harnising the basics of good hard dynamic aikido first,
There is this problem, but I don't think it has much to do with not practicing kicks too often. I think anyone who can handle themselves aikidowise could enter and perform technique against a kick easily enough. I think eventually the direction an attacks intention is coming from is more important than the actual attack. (eg attacks can be grouped into vertical, yokomenesque, ushiro...)

Have I made myself clear? (probably no- sorry!)
