Re: to cross train or not to cross train?

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I thought I'd post in here instead of starting a new one.

As I posted a while back, I've recently started learning Tomiki Aikido (only been there for about a month) and I'm really liking it. However, training is only twice a week at this Dojo, and I'd like to train in something a couple more times a week as well. Can any of you fine folk recommend a martial art that would compliment the Aikido I've just started learning but, ideally, is different enough not to confuse things?

I have no intention of stopping Aikido as I've wanted to learn it ever since I found about it but, like I said, it would be nice to train in something else as well, for fitness and practicality. I'm not saying that Aikido isn't practical, but my Sensei did imply it takes a long time to become proficient enough to be able to use it effectively.

Thanks
