bjj will complement you're tkd so well you will probably quit doing it. Stay away from Aikido

Judo is a good complimentary style. It throws and sweeps can be easily assimilated into TKD stand up.

dont have judo around me, those are my two options.

The Yoseikan Budo inst normal akido, here are some links that describe it:

I'd agree that Judo would give you more of a complete MMA package, but BJJ would ultimately be the better complement (due to the focus and quality of the groundwork).

You don't have Judo around??? Well, I guess there isn't much selection on the moon... Where are you?

So should I go Judo or BJJ, or doesnt it matter? And why not akido, it seems that and judo are very similar.

That's not fair. I think Aikido would mix nice with TKD. Unless of course you really want to learn how to fight well.

There's nothing wrong with Aikido as long as you realize Aikido is Aikido and nothing more.

Take BJJ. It has alot of good techniques on the ground.

bjj, of the two you listed. Much more physicality in the training...as far as against someone else. Less of the " I do this, you do that", and more learning how to overcome adversity..and resistance.
