The class will start with the rules and fundamentals, and progress through basic concepts of capturing, counting and making territory, and connecting stones to make strong shape. Interactive problem solving and games on smaller (9x9) boards are part of the fun.
Each child will receive their own workbook ($15 value) with exercises they can practice between classes, and fun manga comics that explain Go while telling stories.
