    • Hi, if your son wants to learn how to move pieces or what is the rule of chess, we suggest you use lichess.org. This website has basic tutorial on it. In our junior coaching, we assume you son has already know how to move pieces. And the coaching focus on basic or fundamental variations, something a bit advanced than scholar mate.
      If you are interested please register at this address. We will add you to the parent whatsapp group and share the link for coaching.
