ABOUT US

Welcome to Creative Chess Academy! We provide Chess training aimed at developing creativity in children.

“Creativity has nothing to do with any activity in particular – with painting, poetry, dancing, singing. It is the quality that you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things.” ―Osho

Welcome to Creative Chess Academy! Our trainers have years of experience with students of various ages and ability levels. We provide assistance at
  • chess tournaments
  • building an opening repertoire specific to a student’s strengths
  • tournament game review and,
  • game analysis
  • Conventional chess coaching revolves around giving more information to chess pupils. They already have far too much of it ― in form of books, and databases filled with millions of games. Instead, at Creative Chess Academy
  • we embed the ability to make sense of information,
  • Combine many bits of information into a broad picture of the overall game.
  • We believe the experiences at the chessboard teach all of us valuable lessons. Chess is a mirror of life. The more experience pupil has, the more mature he or she becomes.
    Chess is like a language, the top players are very fluent at it. Talent can be developed scientifically but you have to find first what you are good at.

    -Viswanathan Anand
    Former World Chess Champion

    FAQ

    Our academy offers a free demo class to determine the level of the student. It depends on the individual student. Usually, it takes one or two months from level 1 to 2.

    Better to spend more time on the chessboard. Playing with friends and other fun activities are recommended. Rather than learning too much theory. 

    Once the student is done with the basics, he or she can join in tournaments based on their level. 

    There are children who started as early as age of 5.

    Parents should provide all the necessary material. It is better if parents don’t interfere too much in training or learning. Give some space for the child to explore, make mistakes and learn independently. 

    Students should be comfortable with the trainer and there should be good rapport between the student and the trainer.

    It should be left to the student. If he or she enjoys practice then it is good. We should not impose things.

    Chess books are very useful. 

    If the student sets a goal for himself then it is good. Parents and Trainers should not set any goals for the student.
