Can I practice Jujitsu and Aikido at the same time? My sensei teaches both Jujitsu and Aikido. The Jujitsu class is completely self defense. There is randori, but no competition.

Do you think I can do both arts at the same time?
If you are practicing them both for self defense, then they are just different training methods and tactics for self defense. That means just like how you can learn classical and rock guitar at the same time, you can also learn both of these.

If one is for self defense, and the other is not, then the question is the same as asking if you can practice both jiujitsu and soccer without conflict as they are two different physical things with different goals.

So I guess I'm saying yes you can. With one warning. When learning a new physical skill, you really need to dedicate 6 or more hours a week to it to truly build skill in my opinion. But if you have the time, then why not.
