Calmness under pressure
All of these skills can be awakened or developed with chess. Classes are taught by competitive chess players to provide the best education. Our coaches have experience playing in online and in-person tournaments and can also open this door of opportunity for their students!
Learning the basics. How do my pieces move and where are they strongest/weakest? What are the special moves and how do I promote? How do I close out a game and many more questions.
This is where the real fun begins! At this stage we learn about the most common endgames and tactics as well as basic opening theory. The most frequent tricks and traps are also introduced here. As a bonus we also practice chess notation and how to solve puzzles; Mate in 2 and mate in 3 mostly.
Refine your skills by solving more difficult puzzles and learning your first opening. Start thinking many moves ahead and preparing your pieces early on for a much later attack. We start to use the tactics and traps we learned as an intermediate player every game and develop a strategy!
