Your Guide to the Go Galaxy
Carefully structured video lessons with matching practical exercises.
Study at your own pace, test your skills and get stronger!
This is Just the Beginning
Our goal is to create the ultimate platform for studying Go
- Accessibility. The cost of online courses is significantly lower than that of one-on-one or even group classes with a teacher.
- Quality. Our courses are not lengthy screencasts, they are carefully planned and highly efficient video lessons with practical exercises.
- Gamification. All the courses are integrated within the platform. As you solve problems you get XP, crystals and coins which lets you keep track of your progress and stay motivated.
Tree of Skills
Tree of Skills
The main tool of daily skill training in Go.
The strength of a Go player is a combination of different skills and abilities e.g. choosing direction in fuseki, knowledge of joseki and tesuji, a feel for good shape etc. As a rule a problem with one of them greatly weakens overall performance. We want to merge all the Go skills into a single gaming system, similar to those in RPG games. This will let you have fun when solving problems and find possible weaknesses in your play at the same time.
