◆ Any technique can be rotated, as each count in each kata has been photographed from 4 different angles (north, south, east, west).
◆ More advanced movements are illustrated with additional pictures in landscape-mode, making the transition to the following count more understandable.
◆ Enbusen is shown together with the count, and can be enlarged or removed.
◆ Any count can be looked up in an instance with the thumbnail-mode.
