Microsoft Kinect technologies being developed provide the active phase of learning, regardless of age, and therefore are useful in teaching in secondary, senior and higher schools;
the concept of the given textbook is a multi-functional, since it includes various forms of learning (theoretical foundations, tests for each section, diary of phased development of physical qualities).
