CHINA sets up GO for regular curriculum in elementary schools

just came in this news…. CHINA will setup GO as part of regular curriculum in elementary schools….


On 30th of May, high officials from Beijing, China Baduk Associaiton and Mind sports association gathered and announced all 6 Mind Sports Games became a regular subject in elementary school in China.

Beijing would let all 1~3 grade of elementary students to learn Baduk 12 times in a semester and China Baduk Association tests it after that.

China Baduk Association’s goal is to make 30 million Children Baduk people. To do that, they would enlarge their activities in the future. Many wins in the world championships is helping them to boost Baduk popularity.

To become a regular subject is all three countries’ goal from the past.

In Korea, there are two universities which have Baduk departments and Baduk high school in Jeonlanamdo province. And Baduk academy’s activity after school time is developing very fast.

In Japan, Japan Baduk Association dispatches pro players to 30 schools to teach Baduk to more than 6,000 students. But its activity has limitation in middle and high school as all students are busy in studying other subjects.

The head of state of China Xi Jinfing was very proud of how China Baduk improved with ChangHao 9Dan when Xi Jinfing met with Park GeonHea the president of Korea in the past.

It is pretty well known that Xi Jinfing the head of state of China consider Baduk as an important matter. He once visited and said about the advantages of learning Baduk in the graduation of the university. And he also recommended diplomats to learn Baduk.

As the head of state of China emphasizes Baduks’ importance, it would have a lot of impact in all Baduk campaigns and activities in China.

There would be no detailed progress in making Baduk as a regular subject in Korea. All people who love Baduk are saying that we shouldn’t be rush to handle small problems, instead we should make best systems to Baduk improve further in Korea. We should see the future not the present’s small problems.

About LinuxGooo

I am a real Go Beginner… but I like to learn and have fun with. And I fell in love with playing for influence (mainly San-RenSei fuseki, Cosmic style) as white and black. … 26th Jan 2014 I started on KGS (as 6-7kyu since Sept), another global GO Server on the web. On 4th March 2014 I registrated on OGS (Online Go Server). In July I began to play on Korean servers, on Tygem (10kyu) and on Wbaduk (11kyu). If possible by time, I like to have reviews and analysis of my games, which helps to progress (beside observing/Kibitzing Dan games). – My special thanks go to different KGS teachers/players for audio lectures and individual reviews: Dsaun (N.Y.), Battusai, TapJoshua (4D), Troll (2D), MXHero (5D), Shygost (3D), Mingjiu Jiang (7P)… not to forget all the other KGS players who offered me their knowledge and shared their personal experiences. My special tks go to Dsaun for his audio lecture “Shape” (on 22nd Febr 2014) which was the first step into a systemtical learning. Currently I study with www.321go.org and with the first GO book: “Graded Go Problems for Beginners” (Vol. 1-4) by Kano Yoshinori. Volume 1: Introductory Problems Volume 2: Elementary Problems VOlume 3: Intermediate Problems Volume 4: Advanced Problems For individual “offline training” I experimented with and use different bot programmes: Aya 6.34 (1k), Oakfoam GNU Go 3.8 and Zenith 4.4. better known as Zen (5k-5D) (Rec.: Running these bots I use as front end (Goban) Drago.) For editing/rediting SGF files the programme MultiGo 4 is suitable. Have fun behind the board…
