1. Is it necessary to go outside your chosen martial art? (for us, Aikido)
Possibly. Depending upon an individual's goals and the aikido training available to them.
2. If yes, when would be a good time to start studying a supplementary martial art?
As soon as the need is recognized, provided the individual is able to do so. I presume "supplementary" indicates a the situation where one person is seeking to improve their performance by focusing on a particular weakness. It just so happens the perceived weakness is best addressed in another art. So, I would suggest starting the other art when the need is recognized, and leaving when the weakness is no longer present.
