beautifully promo video: Go is like water in the flow… and keeping in harmony.

If we look at Go from different perspectives, it can be more than a board game. Go can connect us with different cultures, history of ancient times (like the Eido period), spirituality and philosophy.

Watching a Go game and highly profiles players it teaches us to learn about balance, self control, continuouity and harmony. A good fuseki (opening) in a Go game is like the water flow of a creek, steadily moving forward… being connected and keeping flexible.

Since centuriees Go has inspired artists of different genres, e.g. painters, poets, sculptors and nowadays film makers and cartoonists… as we can see in following promo clip. The video is an excellent expression about what GO can be.

The production (by 6puck) of this beautifully promo video is casting Japanese Mannami Nao (born: 10th Sept 1988), a professional 3 Dan player and member of The Nihon-ki In. Nao was trained by 9P Dan Oeda Yusuki (1935-2010). She has a five year elder sister. Mannami  Kana is professional Go player, too (4 p Dan of The Nihon-ki In).

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…
