"The essence of Chess is thinking about what Chess is."
David Bronstein
“I started playing chess when I was about 4 or 5 years old. It is very good for children to learn to play chess, because it helps them to develop their mental abilities. It also helps to consolidate a person's character, because as it happens both in life and in a chess game we have to make decisions constantly. In chess there is no luck and no excuses: everything is in your hands.”
Vladimir Kramnik
"A fit body, a calm mind, a house full of love. These things cannot be bought - they must be earned."
Naval Ravikant
"To avoid losing a piece, many a person has lost the game."

“If you can recognize the strengths and weaknesses of your opponent, then you can start thinking about designing the game that will be beneficial for you – and will be most annoying for your opponent.”
Garry Kasparov
“Chess is like body-building. If you train every day, you stay in top shape. It is the same with your brain - chess is a matter of daily training.”
Vladimir Kramnik
“You should remember that when you make a move, the opponent makes a move. And anything can change.”
Garry Kasparov
"Becoming successful at Chess allows you to discover your own personality. That's what I want for the kids I teach."

What do studies say about chess?

Chess is the sport of the mind! Studies show that practicing chess over time leads to the development of intelligence and increased IQ.

Chess teaches you to have logical thinking, to develop strategies and to improve your memory. The brain functions like a muscle and needs constant exercise to keep it healthy.

Chess is the best way to practice logical and critical thinking. A child may not notice, but chess means more than a game:  arranging ideas, creating a plan, forming reasoned thinking and making choices.
Chess demonstrates the importance of drawing up a plan, concentrating, and realizing the consequences of decisions.

During the game of chess each player must pay attention to the opponent’s moves, paying attention to each piece and detail. Chess develops the power of concentration, patience and memory.

Chess helps a child develop his imagination as he learns the game and discovers new positions and possible combinations.
Chess gives clarity to thinking and encourages creative thinking. A chess player learns to see creative ways and discovers strategies on the chessboard.

Chess develops the spirit of independence, forcing the player to make decisions based only on his own reasoning. Chess helps children to become independent, to make decisions and to have a positive, winning attitude.
During the game of chess each player creates a plan, develops strategies and follows certain rules. Children gain confidence in their own strengths when they discover what wonderful things they can build with the power of their minds.

Chess teaches you to think logically and efficiently and helps you make the best choice from a large number of options. Thanks to chess, children learn to make the “best” choice from a large number of options under the pressure of time.
