“I started playing chess when I was about 4 or 5 years old. It is very good for children to learn to play chess, because it helps them to develop their mental abilities. It also helps to consolidate a person’s character, because as it happens both in life and in a chess game we have to make decisions constantly. In chess there is no luck and no excuses: everything is in your hands.”

Vladimir Kramnik, World Chess Champion

CHESS IS LIFE IN MINIATURE✨

We talked so many times about how chess makes your everyday life easier. It helps you think faster, reassess, and adapt your strategy to what is actually happening.

You cannot win the game if you're completely fixated on the one strategy that you chose to play, because your opponent, regardless of how amazing and good your strategy is, is paying attention to both your moves and their own moves.

In both life and chess, we need to accept what's happening and act accordingly.

Otherwise, by the time you actually look around you, you'll see you are completely lost and with a plan that's no longer viable.

Learn how to play chess with us and notice the improvement in your everyday life.
