I have noticed that Aikido and knife work compliment eachother with different techniques.

Any advise for a dedicated beginner?
Risking the howls, I'll venture that aikido technique and training methods are less optimized for knife work than other arts. I think the Phillipinos have a leg up on the blade stuff and if I were serious about knife fighting, that's where I'd go.
