Hello out there! How much training in Aikido should I have under my belt ( no pun intended) before I start formal training in like say Kenpo or BJJ? I think I have to much time on my hands. Thanks! Bye!
Enough to know the difference. Enough to know the difference in approach, technique, philosophy, application, history, concept and relationships to other forms of martial arts.

If you really want to augment your aikido, I'd sugest another Japanese budo, such as judo, for instance, that will share some common ideas, terminology, and methodologies to aikido.
