UPDATES (15-Jun-2017)

1. Level 6 work started - 5% done


You are invited to discover a user friendly, effective teaching chess method!
• A blend of European and North American traditional and modern teaching techniques
• Easy to follow and use by players of any level or by chess teachers and instructors
• Perfected over a period of four decades of chess teaching and active play

It has helped our students reach the highest levels of performance such as:
Harmony Zhu, World Champion @ the World Youth Chess Championship 2013
• Two top 10 places @ the World Youth Chess Championship (2008 and 2012)
• A North American Champion title (2007)
• Several national titles
• Multiple provincial and local titles by age group

This app follows the highly successful teaching method implemented by us at various chess clubs. Although our students are children and youth, it is intended for chess lovers of any level up to a 2000 national rating. The rating levels are provided for guidance only and are set based on over 200 students’ real experiences. Still we cannot guarantee you will achieve them. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own chess performances. If your desire is to improve, understand and enjoy the game, this app is for you too. It will guide you along the way to success!
