Go is the oldest board game.
In 2003 I learned Go in Edinburgh (Scotland).
Since 2005 tournaments have been part of my life.
Now, I am 4 dan, teaching a lot of beginner groups all over Germany.
I distribute Go in kindergardens and primary schools.

Currently, I write a Go book for children between 3-5 years and
translate a Taiwanese children Go book into German and English (5-8 years).
