Isn't that akin to putting the cart before the horse?

Do we not gain aiki by training, learning techniques?
Nope, as Ron also confirmed, by the words of aiki people you don't gain aiki by doing techniques.

If you want to race in the Daytona 500, you first have to learn how to drive.
And aiki would be the driving part actually. However, in all respect to them, you didn't NEED aiki to successfully perform the techniques, it mostly comes down to what is determined as successful in the given context.
