Does anyone have any good suggestions for arts that are complimentary to Aikido?
I currently crosstrain in brazilian jiu-jitsu (bjj twice per week and aikido three times per week) and I personnally find that it is very complimentary to the blending principal of aikido. The philosophy behind how each style deals with an attack is the same, i.e. take what they give you and blend with it, so there are no conflicts and no confusion when switching between classes. In that sense, for lack of a better term, it is "aikido on the ground."
