Tuesdays Are Big For Little Players

we have verbal permission from familes to publish

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.

Another Epic Battle for YouTube

Andrew and Nick on a Tuesday NightInstructors 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.

Best Times for Beginners

We are ready to teach complete beginners informally on Tuesdays from 3 – 9 PM, and on Saturdays from 1 – 5 PM.   We also have the Beginners Class on Thursday evening, starting at 6:30, with Larry Eclipse.

Beginners on Tuesdays and Saturdays don’t need an appointment, and we arrange individual or small group lessons with volunteers who are ready to teach when you walk in.  This spring, we have about 25 – 40  players coming sometime on Tuesdays, including about 4 children.  Saturdays are smaller, about 20 players, but we have volunteers available to teach then as well.  The day manager, usually Dennis Wheeler 7K,  is also available to teach beginners from 1-5 PM.

If you prefer to learn in a class setting, we recommend the Thursday evening class for those who are starting out.  Complete beginners can start at any time. This is also a good night for more advanced beginners, so if Thursdays are good for you, come on by.
