Re: Integrating aikido with other martial arts.

Some people are just naturally stiffer. It could be a bi-product of their karate, but it could also just be their body type.

Honestly, training in anything different will have an impact on your moves. Whether it is big or small, good or bad, it will change things. Chances are though, that your aikido experience will help you keep your ability to blend and yield better.
