The photographs in this entry are those of a 21 part series (inclusive of a promotional booklet) of Chinese Kung-Fu Karato (Atado), The Chinese Art of Self-Defence That Is Executed Almost Without Any Bodily Contact (Leong Fu System of Self-Defence) written by Honourable Master Leong Fu, retired undefeated Chinese Kung-Fu Champion of the World. Each part consists of an outer card folder containing a set of illustrated loose sheet instructions bound with a clear plastic wrap. Illustration are both line illustrations and photographs, rear covers feature a photograph of Leong Fu.

According to peterharrington.co.uk, no copies have been recorded by the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) in any libraries internationally, and no trade records in the usual channels.
