Hi Andrew

I don't do any other special physical training myself but I think partner dancing and something like Yoga could be very useful.

Dancing may not be considered training but the leading, blending and posture work needed for that relates really well to Aikido blending, etc.

Yoga type of excersise should really help the flexibility and breathing work needed for Aikido. I've heard Pilates is really good too and someone in our Aikido group who has been doing some said there are some good connections to Aikido in it.
