the training

9 hour per day training

Each day is divided into three teaching sessions:
– morning (9 am – 1pm),
– afternoon (3pm – 6pm), and
– evening (7pm-9pm).
In the afternoon session there is the option to do other active entertainment instead of Go.

Up to 7 days

Intensive Training Camps usually will take one week. You can choose which dates are suitable for you and join even for one day.


The language of the camp 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.

Age and Rank

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

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.

We’ve got you covered!

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… 


The JIGS student is asked to leave Line I when turning 20. The student can continue studying anytime in Line II. In case not all places are filled, the student might stay longer in Line I depending on a decision by the management.

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 interact 

with and select a national school.
