I think that if you want to systematically train for aerobic fitness, you're better off not counting on aikido to do it.
If you trained in Shodokan Aikido you will find out it is a lot more aerobic than mainstream Aikido.

For aerobic fitness, I'd seek an outside activity where you can exercise continuously at whatever level will give you a training effect.
Like hopscotch, rope jumping, etc.
