After-school group classes in Brooklyn.

After-school chess is in a ‘learn& play’ format- kids become familiar with a variety of chess themes during the demonstration part of the class and get to use the acquired knowledge and skills in the games with their peers. A very productive hour-long session goes by very fast! I organize classes at 3 different locations in Brooklyn:

1.Williamsburg, Wednesdays at 3: Twenty Sided Store , 362 Grand St, please click here to register for the classes.

Great chess competition on Upper West Side!

Today was the first tournament ever at the karate studio UWS Kenshikai on Upper West Side. Chess is loved by the martial artists and many of the kids practice both, so it was a great opportunity to all of the chess kids who come to the UWS Kenshikai Dojo to do karate to compete on the 64 squares this time. We had 18 kids in two different sections, the youngest players were 5 years old! Everybody had a great time and took a nice trophy award home. More tournaments are coming soon!
