      About Chess:

      Chess can be enjoyed by any age— Children can learn chess very early, some even as early as two years old! The key is to teach them in a child-oriented way, instead of relying on standard methods for adult learners or for school children. For adults, these brain exercises can be part of the health of your brain for your entire life! It is a connector—bringing together people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds.

      Chess is over 1500 years old—one of the oldest games in the world! In every game, you are required to problem solve and face challenges—it can help you learn to take your time, think ahead, and weigh the outcome of your options. It teaches us to remain calm and make good decisions under pressure; and also about choices, consequences, and focus. The process of learning to win develops confidence, personal style, and can also develop character by teaching us how to lose and overcome failure. 

      An active brain is a healthy brain. Chess will challenge your brain to exercise logic, develop pattern-recognition, make both visual and analytical decisions, and test your memory.

      AGE: 2 to Adult
