I think conceptual/philosophical constructs and aikido practice have little in common, or about as much as thinking about music theory will help you master the guitar (which I don't play).
pretty much agree with you. You are ready to play the guitar (which I do), when you are ready to pick one up and practice for endless hours. You only master the guitar when you no longer have to think about what you are doing (which I can't).

I think Aikido is pretty much the same.
