Benefits of Learning Chess

Chess is a cordial game that involves two minds competing against one another across 64 squares on a Black & White board. This match between two minds requires a constant amount of attention and concentration, which triggers every neuron in the brain, making chess the key to nurturing a young mind.

Promotes Logical and Creative Thinking

Chess involves forming patterns and predicting and foreseeing similar patterns to successfully gain an advantage in different positions on the board. This forces the mind to utilize every logical, analytical and creative ability it possesses, promoting higher mental functioning of a growing brain.

The puzzles we provide on a daily basis on our private community website page provide the perfect stimulus for such functioning.

Better Information Processing

Dendrites are branches of neurons that receive information from other neuron cells. A study showed that learning chess at an early age allows these dendrites to grow. This would improve the overall information processing ability in a child, allowing a child to increase his/ her mental capacity and abilities.

Concentration and Memory

Chess KLUB provides students with a personal guide to a variety of Openings and combinations that are a key in the path to becoming an excellent chess player. These variations require students to understand and memorize multiple patterns that could arise from singular variations, hence proving to improve a students cognitive abilities.

Forward Thinking

It is very crucial to predict your opponents responses to your moves and keep track of a few moves ahead of your next move while playing chess. This forces a student to analyze the future moves and patterns before physically playing those combinations on the board. 

Chess requires a minimum of keeping track of what can happen on a board at least two moves in advance, enhancing every students forward thinking capabilities.

Spirit of Competitiveness

Even if you perceive yourself to be genetically physically less stronger than your peers, this game is going to subtract such a factor as it is purely based on an individual’s mental capacities. A war between two minds generates a strong sense of competitiveness while maintaining a cordial equation between two players, thus promoting healthy competition.

At Chess KLUB, we offer a platform for all students to play tournaments every week, where they can compete with one another and keep this spirit alive.
