Re: Peter Byl
My advice, it's best to take them both as their own separate activity and not worry about one art being an aid or auxiliary to the other. You are apt to look for things that aren't there, and ignore or miss things that you should be paying attention to in whichever art is your second preference. Or, the worst, you will see similarities that aren't really there and are ultimately pointless.
Both activities will allow you to develop general skills that will help you grow.
