Smile Mixing Kung Foo with Aikido?

Hey guys, good idea or bad idea? need some feedback really, spesh if anybody has tried it. a friend wants to do Kung fu and he's not interested in aikido much (he likes to bash heads i guess) but i've always liked kung fu yet i love aikido so i'm planning to go along to the classes as they do not clash with my aikido training sessions.
yikes if i do it'll be Wing chun on monday aikido thursday wing chun friday and aikido again on saturday add going to the gym maybe on wednesday then pile on a wife and newborn (BOOYAH!)
now thats what i call extreme living!

IMHO, cross training is great. Just kep them separate and let them mix themsleves as you get more proficient in each.

WC has great hands. I love the traps and the straight blast. Wooden dummies are a great workout. Chi Sau is great blending. Enjoy.

Until again,

Chin Na is a kung fu grappling system that has some similar applications to Aikido. Great stuff!

Those who are skilled at combat do not become angered or afraid. Thus, the wise win before the fight, while the ignorant fight to win.
