    II. Introduction
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This is a guide for all of the Dojo Moves and Techniques that can be learned in
    Okami. It's also my very first attempt at a FAQ. There may be a few minor
    spoilers.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IIi. Wii Version Note
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Obviously, those of you play the Wii version of Okami won't be using strange 
    buttons such as "Square", "X", "Circle", "Triangle" or "R2". Instead, to use 
    normal attacks, as controlled by "Square" in the PS2 version, time your Wii 
    remote swings in rythmn with your attacks. For sub-weapons, use the Z button 
    located on the back of the Nunchuk attackment (This is also used to bark out 
    of battle). To dig, use the C button, also located on the back of the nunchuk 
    (and again, this takes a second action, it's used for both the Golden Fury and 
    Brown Rage attacks in-battle). Finally, shake the Nunchuk in a particular 
    direction to perform a Fleetfoot dodge, which utilized the "R2" button in the 
    earlier version.

    IViii. New Game +
    ===============================================================================
    
    After you complete the game, you can start a new file with a New Game +.
    You keep your stats, Yen, Praise, and most of your items. However, you don't
    keep all of your Dojo Techniques. The ones you keep when you start a New Game +
    are:
    
    -Reflector Technique- 4 Winds
    -Reflector Technique- 5 Winds
    -Rosary Technique- Spirit Storm
    -Rosary Technique- Spirit Armageddon
    -Glaive Technique- 3 Shears
    -Glaive Technique- 4 Shears
    -God Technique- Wailing Mirror
    -God Technique- Bead String
    -God Technique- Sword Dance
    -God Technique- Counter Dodge(You have to re-learn Fleetfoot to use this)
    -God Technique- Holy Falcon(You have to re-learn Holy Eagle to use this)
    -God Technique- Golden Fury
    -God Technique- Brown Rage
    
    Counter Dodge and Holy Falcon are most likely kept so that you don't have to
    wait until you get to Kamui to learn them again.
