Jesse, you just described Nihon Goshin Aikido where likely real-life attacks are what we train for (therefore, we rarely use bokken). We also do defense from knives, kicks, multiple man (at higher levels), ground work.
I feel like I should get a hold of what I'm studying before I consider cross training.
