I would just mix an equal amount of stretching into your workout to keep/increase your flexibility as you weight train.

When I trained karate for a year, the practice alone was enough to strengthen my body. I find the same thing with aikido too. Maybe more importantly, the techniques appear to build up the 'appropriate' muscles that need building for each technique.
