Learning Igo (Wei Chi, Baduk) and teaching Igo have a similarity: Part II

Yesterday the point I was trying to make was that
both Igo players and Kaz as a Igo teacher need to
face the fact that we may know less than we think.exclamation

In my case if I'm satisfied with my teaching, and
if I think I already know how to teach Igo very
well, then I feel like I stop thinking about
improving my teaching.

It's better for me to think that I still have to
learn how to teach from my Igo students.

Only then, will I try to keep improving my teaching.

Now I should go back to giving advice!

So here I repeat my advice for adult Igo players again
since I strongly believe the following advice is very important
for Igo players.

ぴかぴか(新しい)"You should choose Go books you can understand easily.ぴかぴか(新しい)

ぴかぴか(新しい) You should try Go problems you can solve easily.ぴかぴか(新しい)

ぴかぴか(新しい) Easy life-and-death problems good enough to make you a one-dan.ぴかぴか(新しい)

ぴかぴか(新しい) You should find Go books which you can enjoy reading."

The key to finding good books is to look for books
which are easy for you to understand as well as exciting
for you to read.

If you have a vague understanding, then it's not the right
level for you.

If you get excited with the book, the level may very well
be right for you.

At least it's not at all wasting your time and money.

Those books are helping you strengthen your bases to build
a five-storied building in the future.

The more you read, the stronger your bases become,
the more you're ready to read more advanced books in
the near future.

When it comes to life-and-death problems, you should be
very careful!

Many people try very advanced problems.

And many people hardly ever study life-and-death problems.
That means that it's one of their weakest points.

That means they should choose easy life-and-death problem

I often say "If solving a life-and-death problem takes
more than 3 minutes, it may be way advanced for you."

Then you should find easier life-and-death problem

Even if you can find the answer in a flash, if you keep
solving the problems over and over again, this practice
definitely helps you a lot.

That's how Ryokusei-Igo-Gakuen students studied.

And Mr. Yamashita, who used to have the Kisei title,
studied at Ryokusei-Igo-Gakuen.
