Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk. Kaz's original Igo-advice & fundamentals of Igo: An Igo lecture for kyu players was successful!!!


An Igo lecture for kyu players was successful!!!

An Igo lecture for kyu players was successful!!!



It looks like a number viewers of the blog are decreasing…

I guess many of them are not interested in my
experience at the U.S. Go Congress.がく〜(落胆した顔)

So I’m going to finish it in a couple of days, and
going to start advice again.

I still have a lot of Igo advice to give. わーい(嬉しい顔)

I’m also going to have a blog, introducing where
to visit Tokyo.

The reason is that I know many foreigners visit
Japan. So I always thought it would be useful
to have a blog like that…

(Do you already know such blog or website? If you do,
please let me know. Thanks!)


Yesterday I said:

"It's really simple. All you need is just one
move to approach..."

I'm sorry to say, ふらふらbut I'm going to show that to you
in my Go text services, beginning in October at this
website:

http://www.kazsensei.com/

So if you'd like to know, be sure to join me!

The first membership fee is going to be the cheapest!


Now I'm going back to talking about the U.S. Go Congress!


So on the second day I presented how to approach a various
type of corner stones, along with some of the most common
amateur mistakes.


The counter moves of those common mistakes were very easy to
learn...

Well, that's why I chose them, so kyu players could learn
them easily.

At the same time I chose them because that will
help them build basics.


When it comes to teaching, I always stick with basics.


Again in this lecture many kyu players seemed to be comfortable
to ask me questions.
わーい(嬉しい顔)

Usually kyu players are hesitant to ask questions.ふらふら

But even some 20 kyu players asked me questions.ぴかぴか(新しい)

So I was happy, and I thought that the lecture went great.

There was a Chinese boy who also participated in the
lecture a couple of times; he presented ぴかぴか(新しい)brilliant ideas!ぴかぴか(新しい)

I had a lot of fun in this lecture!


On the third day and the fourth day, I had a chance
to teach that Chinese boy and his brother privately.

It was a lot of fun, too.

They were so smart and quick learners.

In fact the children and teenagers I met at the U.S.
Go Congress were all smart and have a lot of potential
for Igo (Wei Chi, Baduk).

All they have to do is continue studying...

If they do that, I'm sure they learn fairly quickly.


On the third day and the fourth day, I had simultaneous Igo
games known as "simuls", and I showed my very original
teaching for the first time in the West!


To be continued.


Write a comment along with Japanese words such as "囲碁". Without Japanese words, you can't leave the comment.
It could also be that some readers are reading your blog through the RSS feed, so maybe they don't show up properly in the statistics.

Anyway, I think it is a very interesting blog and am looking forward to more 囲 advice and lessons.

Hmm, that's strange - I definitely put in both kanji for igo (囲碁) in the last comment and in this one, but only the first kanji shows up...

Dear Marcel,

Thanks for your comments!

Well, the statistics I'm looking at is "Access Analyzer", like "Google Analytics", which I haven't used, yet.
(maybe I should...)

So I think that covers the RSS feed... Or not?

I have to ask someone who knows this stuff...

Thanks again for your comments!

I think this was the kyu lecture of yours that I went to -- I enjoyed it a lot. It was funny, when I missed one of your questions you described the move I suggested as "a gentlemanly move, a very kind move - if you travel abroad, you might play a move like this to express friendship". :)

Thanks for doing the blog!
- David.

Dear David,

Thanks very much for your kind comments!

Yes, I do remember that I said "a gentlemanly move, a very kind move" although I can't remember which one...

Sorry!

I'll do my best to keep up the blog!

Thanks again.
