Your first joseki guide

(6)

The game has just started, you played the first corner sequence and something clearly went wrong. Sounds familiar? Those are issues with playing the initial corner variations — joseki.

In this course you will learn the main simple joseki patterns and understand what they are made of. How not to screw things up if your opponent chooses a difficult variation and how to make it complicated if necessary. The joseki will no longer seem like scary sharp-toothed monsters, more like a set of useful tools. What’s left now is to choose a suitable one at the right moment.

Suitable for: 15–8k who are already familiar with the basic opening principles.

Don't memorize Joseki, learn the principles. 😊👍 Keep it simple and efficient. Great course, but... We want more 🤪

I really share the impressions of the other reviews : the classes were excellent, with some great suggestions, and a very solid review of the basic principles behind the theory of corner joseki. The discussion and comparaisons between classical theory and the AI suggestions is really a must. Thank you very much !

As a low dan player, I still find material like this very valuable. Returning to the fundamentals time and time again is what makes a strong player, strong. A good grasp of the simple leads to a good grasp of the complicated. Often we get so far ahead in our thinking that the obvious becomes blindness, and we miss a simple but effective moves. We should never forget the principals in this course.

As a 7-8 kyu, I can't agree more with Axnyff. Even though most of the variations were well known to me beforehand, Vadim did an amazing job showing WHY the josekis are as they are, and what can happen if you tenuki prematurely or play the wrong moves. Can't wait for more joseki courses. Go Magic has in my opinion the best joseki course online. All that is needed is MORE!

Great course, even if it's supposed to be a first joseki course I learned a lot of stuff as a 4kyu!
