Well the only form of learn the aiki jo kata (6,13 and 31 movement)is in the Iwama's dojos,becuse it born on study of Saito Sensei learn of OSensei.
Saito Sensei is the only person that Osensei show the complet study of the weapons in aikido,Saito is the only master of aiki ken and aiki jo in live of Ueshiba.
Today akido's dojos pactise more katas of kenjutsu's ryu,kashima,yagyu,muso(for the jo)....but the aikiken and aikijo are reality aikido's weapons system art,whit a big pedagogyc system of ejercices.
