Playing Go in the Tatami Room
We have five young players coming to the Go Center on Tuesdays in the early evening. All of them will be starting kindergarten in the fall. This is a great age for one-on-one learning of the game. Many of the parents play Go, and they are rotating the pairings so that the children get a variety of opponents. We also have three grade school students and two high school students coming on Tuesdays. Our recent Tuesday attendance has been over 40 players, ranging from beginner to about 4 dan. We also have children coming on Saturday afternoons.
Instructors Andrew Jackson (left) and Nick Sibicky (right) will be playing a friendly but intense game during Nick’s DDK class on Monday, June 27, starting at 6:30 p.m. This will be Nick’s last Double Digit Kyu Player class for the summer, but he will probably be teaching again in the fall. During July, we will have guest instructors Brian Kirby, Jonathan (Chin Jung) Chen and Maeda Ryo 6P. There will be no classes on July 4, and in August. Nick’s lectures are recorded and posted on YouTube. Many of Andrew’s Single Digit Kyu Player classes are posted here.
