Koshiki no kata month

As part of my regular posting this year on the Mokuren Dojo blog, I intend to do a month-long focus on a single kata or traditional exercise.  This month I will start with Koshiki no Kata - probably one of the least known or practiced kata in the judo repertoire, but also one of the ones deepest in principle.  
By no means do I write this as any sort of authoritative knowledge, but I do have a month's worth of observations that I can make about this set of exercises.
So, with that, I leave you with this old video of Kano and Yamashita performing excerpts of Koshiki no Kata - Judo's "Forms Antique."
