I studied for a short time under a sandan Yoshinkan instructor who felt BJJ is complementary to his Aikdio, and now he teaches them both, sometimes separately and sometimes mashed up together. It's interesting to see how a technique can start in the aikido domain and end in the BJJ domain.
I think I've practiced briefly with the same guy; a few sessions at a UK Shodokan annual seminar thingy, Gadi Shorr and Alon Cohen were there as guest instructors. Excellent stuff, and as you say, no contradiction at all between the aikido and the BJJ.
