Learn Go

A few moments to learn, a lifetime to master.
– Ancient Proverb

Go, Weiqi, Baduk, and the surrounding game are all names for a strategy board game that was created in China over 4000 years ago. Our goal is help teach new players the game, and build a community to enjoy playing and discussing Go.

Here you can sign up for a introduction workshop to teach the rules of the game. A beginner class, which is a 1 hour a week course to get you familiar with the game, and a 5-week league that occurs every other month. The league is a place to improve and have fun. We have a calendar/ schedule on our meetup here.

David Kahn the president of our Go Association put together  a introduction video, the AGA has their own materials to learn, and here is a interactive way to learn.
