Intensive Training
Go in JIGS

We hold 3-4 camps a year. For those who need a full immersion in Go. Every day during the week there are lectures, games, tasks and a lot of fan in the evenings.

Online Go Training

Several opportunities to study Go for people from all over the world.

How is the training going


The language of the school is English or German. If there will be a group of 5 or more people which prefers another language (e.g. French, Italian, Russian) we will create a group in your language.


Reading, focus and your fighting skills will be improved by daily Tsumego. Most strong Go players think this is the most important component to become strong.

League game

Playing games is the most important way to practise your skills. You will have pairings at the beginning of the session.
The games will be face to face and submitted to EGD. After you finish your game, the teacher will review your game.

Age and Rank

Participation is possible for people of any age. The camp is good from beginners to dan level players.

At JIGS we have a team of dedicated teachers to turbo-boost your Go skills. Whether you are just getting started, or already aspiring to become the next European Champion… 


We teach on site from the age of four years. But also welcome students  of any age. Online lessons are recommend for students who can focus one hour in front of a computer.

At any time, potential future students can visit our Go school together with their parents for several days and weeks. The fees for Line I students will apply accordingly. For potential Line III students, the Go Bootcamp for Kids is an elegant way to get to know the other JIGS-students, teachers and environment. This time can also be used to select a national school.
