Some adults in Japan learn Go proverbs whereas kids absorb shapes: Part I.



First I'd like to point out that I am very sorry
if I offended some of you because of my last article:

http://kazsensei.seesaa.net/article/107245023.html

One person did write that she was upset about my article.

I didn't intend to offend anybody. I already explained
my intentions and apologies in the comments. m(_ _)m

From now on I'll try to be more careful about
what I write.


Now today's topic.

Kids obsorb all kinds tesujis and good shapes very
easily.

If kids learn about Go proverbs, they absorb
them as well
.

But it's not uncommon to find some strong teenage players
and sometimes even pros who don't know some of the
Go proverbs.

For them learning Go proverbs is not needed. They need to
learn best moves as much as possible.

So they don't have to pay attention to Go proverbs at all.


In my years of experience in teaching iGo, I've found
that some adults in Japan learn Go proverbs
before they learn the shape of a particular tesuji
explained
by Go proverbs.


This happens in Japan especially to those adult
Go players who have hardly studied the foundations
of Go before
.ふらふら

I think I've mentioned that in Japan many adult Go
players never study basics, but just keep playing
without learning any basics for years and years.

All they are interested is defeating their
rivals and killing all the opponents' stones
.もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)

That's their enjoyment, and nothing can stop them
from pursuing their excitement.


But one day some of them decide to study the
foundations of Go
.わーい(嬉しい顔)

But their own styles filled with common amateur
mistakes are very hard to get rid of, since
they've been playing them for many years...

It's like common amateur mistakes have become
their second nature
.もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)


So they seem to have a very hard time
altering their ordinary way of playing
common amateur mistakes to the basic ways.

But learning Go proverbs is much easier form them
than learning tesujis and shapes.


In fact they use Go proverbs often in Japanese local Go clubs.


They couldn't care less about whether they
understand the meaning of the Go proverbs
.もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)


But I have found many of them who incorrectly
use a go proverb at an incorrect situation.
