Im einzelnen werden anhand von 2540 hochpräzisen Zeichnungen des Autors und ausführlichen technischen Beschreibungen 12 Kata des Gôjû-ryû, 17 Kata des Wadô-ryû und 10 Kata des Shitô-ryû dargestellt. Aus dem Gôjû-ryû werden sämtliche 12 Kata, die der Stilgründer festgelegt hat, vorgestellt, von den beiden Kata Gekisai-dai bis zur Sûpârinpai.
