I'll bite. What are the suspected benefits of about hopping in jo katas in any system or the "Tohei Hop"?
Most of the "hops" (skips, leaps, whatever) that are done in forms practices are to move into position, change position, etc., so they are legitimate in that sense. It's doing a "hop" while you are in engagement (e.g., "connected", etc.) to your opponent that is the no-no.

FWIW
