I was wondering if anyone has done another martial art or something with an element of ki in it and how that pertains to aikido?

My aikido sensei also teaches Tai Chi and after i had done it for a while, aikido became alot easier. Also, after i did reiki, my techniques worked better.

anyone done the same?

We used to have a fellow aikido student teach tai chi for 20-30 minutes before class. I became very aware of ki flow through my palms. The notion of holding a "ball" I liked, which improves some yin-yang type things in aikido as in kokyu-ho, tenchi-nage, etc., where parts of your body move in a circular fashion, where one goes up as the other goes down.

Chi kung (qigong) is directly relevant to Aikido. I think that it can speed up the acquiring of energy which Aikido practice will generate over a longer time.

Absolutely - and sometimes the reverse can be true as well - that learning certain energy exercises in Aikido (that can bring a fairly quick experience of energy) can greatly enhance the learning process in Chi gung.
