I was wondering if anyone has trained in both, and if they think that these arts may compliment eachother?

I love Wally J.
IMHO, small-circle works well with Aikido.
I went to a seminar Wally held back when I was living in the Bay Area in the early 90's. Had a lot of fun and I remember then thinking then it was an interesting take on getting someone's balance through putting them in a bad position.

My first Aikido sensei went off and did some seminars with Wally and when he came back, put us through a world of pain :-)
Great stuff, fits very well with Aikido, but it's all jujitsu. What's interesting is to try to put the "do" back into it.

I am very intrigued by what I've seen on the Small Circle stuff as well.
I enjoyed the small circle JJ view point very much after attending a seminar a few years back with Wally Jay Sensei. His ten? principles resonated very well with some aiki principles.
I heard that he passed away recently :( i think his son Leon carries on the school with an intrest in Kyusho added as well
