      March 2010 Workshop with Myungwan Kim 9P

Registration for this workshop is now closed.

Bay Area Go Players Association is pleased to present an educational Go workshop with Myungwan Kim 9P.

Picture of Myungwan Kim 9P This two-day workshop will be held Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21, 2010 in Berkeley, California—about ten miles east of San Francisco. The workshop is designed for Go players in the range of 7 kyu to 2 dan. Stronger players are allowed to sign up, as long as they understand that the material will be taught at a level best suited for players in the 7 kyu to 2 dan range.

Picture of Myungwan Kim 9P The workshop will include lectures, game analysis, interactive exercises, simuls, and question and answer sessions. This will be a great opportunity to learn from a top Korean 9 dan professional.

Myungwan Kim 9P became a pro in 1994 at the age of 16. He is a three-time runner-up in the BC Card Cup for rookies (1998, 1999, and 2002). In 2004 he was a member of the Bohae team in the Korean league. In 2005 he made it to the final eight in the Samsung World Championship.

Picture of Myungwan Kim 9P Mr. Kim was the first pro sent to the U.S. by the Korean Baduk Association, coming to the Los Angeles area in June, 2008. He won the US Go Congress Open in 2008 and 2009. Today Mr. Kim runs a Go Acadamy in Los Angeles' Korean Go Club, teaching roughly three times per week. Mr. Kim was promoted to 9 dan about three months ago.

Sign up now for this outstanding opportunity to learn from Myungwan Kim 9P. Advanced registration and payment are required.
