Figure Skating Terms/Turns

Turns are differentiated by which edges are used to enter/exit the turn, the rotation toward/away from the edge, and whether one foot or both is used (switching from one foot to the other). Since they can be done in both directions (forwards and backwards) this leads to a massive number of combinations! To simplify life I am only giving one example (a RF entrance) per type.
