One month of 31 aikijo kata

Each month this year I plan to focus on a different kata or formal exercise here on the Mokuren Dojo blog.  This past month I have  dealt with judo's Koshiki no kata.  This coming month I will be writing a good bit on the 31-step aikijo kata and some of its associated exercises, like the suburi and kumijo.
I know it's not the kind of jo work that we usually do - but what's the point of writing a month's worth of articles about stuff that we already know by heart?
To whet your appetite, here is a demonstration of the 31 aikijo kata and associated kumijo.
