videos tutorials (5 clips): Teaching of kidds by Nie Weiping (Chinese, 9 Dan)

9 Dan Nie Weiping...

9 Dan Nie Weiping…

Nie Weiping 聂卫平 (born 17 Aug 1952) 9-dan was for many years the strongest Go player in China. Chang Hao and Gu Li have been his pupil. A translation of Nie’s book Nie Weiping on Go is published by Yutopian (Source: 30th Jan 2014 | Sensei’s Library).

I found following videos documenting Weiping’s teachings of Chinese kidds. I fell over the videos on his own Blog site. Unluckily the page is no more updated since 19th March 2013.

Nie Weiping was one of the consultants who contributed contents to the magazine ShaoErWeiqi (少儿围棋). It was a monthly WeiQi magazine in Chinese language aimed at children. Since August 2010 it has been merged with another magazine formerly known as Weiqi shao nian (围棋少年 = Young Go Master). – Source: 23rd May 2012 | Sensei’s Library.

I like the pedagogic way of Weiping documented in the videos the pupils play both, black and white… in my understanding it helps to get a more clear perspective of the whole game and for the opponent’s situation, too. I never experienced this way of teaching by Western players/teachers inspite I liked it to lay longer sequences for white and black to get a better understanding for the consequences of each move. – Mostly I received negatively critics about like: “you can’t forsee so many moves as the opponent will play something different”. We see by following videos that the Chinese way of teaching is differently. – Amazing to notice these very young kidds playing long sequences excellently (that’s how I see it as beginner / kyu ranked player).

Nie Weiping only interferes from continuouing for showing the consequences, weaknesses or alternatives. – Enjoy it !

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…
