Live Lessons are presented once a week by the AGA national coach Younggil An 8P and other strong Australian Go players with topics suitable for all level of player including beginners.
Live Lessons are delivered using Zoom teleconferencing and attendees are encouraged to ask questions and contribute – it is not like watching a YouTube video.
The Live Lesson schedule for 2023 starts in mid-January and will be accessible to AGA Sustaining members, if the KBA sponsor the lessons they will be made available to all AGA members.
Sustaining members pay $80 for a year – if you are looking for a value proposition, there are close to 50 lessons already scheduled so that is slightly less than $2 per lesson. You can join as a Sustaining member or make a donation on this website.
