FINDING (Y)OUR NEXT MOVE...

We plan to open JIGS in Summer 2019. However, to get our feet wet in terms of running a Go school in Germany/Europe, we decided to start a one-year pilot project from September 2018 to July 2019.

This pilot project will have less than 10 Line I students. However, we are open for Line II students at any time. We will also run several Line III Camps.

If you are interested in participating in one of the Go activities at JIGS, please contact us. We will try our best to fulfill your wish.

 

In Go, the Japanese-originated term moyo means a large area with huge potential. Likewise, In 2019/2020, we aim to expand ourselves by opening an additional (second) class for very young players aged 8+. Kyu players are very much welcome.

Due to the limited number of students, we will not have two regular league games per day as displayed in the schedule (link), but instead use intensive Artificial Intelligence Go programs (link).

As part of the journey to improve their skills, the students at JIGS will regularly interact, exchange and compete:

+ at Go tournaments every month
+ with Professional players living in/visiting Europe
+ with the EGF Go Academy
+ with Inseong’s Yunguseng Dojang
+ with students from Chinese, Korean and Japanese Go schools
+ with visiting/exchanging Go students from Asia
