Go as Communication

The Educational and Therapeutic Value of the Game of Go

Yasuda Yasutoshi

Go as Communication is the record of a surprising discovery, namely, that a simple game called First Capture Go can have enormous educational and therapeutic value.

Yasutoshi Yasuda, the person responsible for this discovery, is a Japanese professional Go player. Concerned about social problems in Japanese schools, Yasuda began introducing a simplified version of Go to school children and discovered to his surprise that it had immediate positive effects. His experiences with school children encouraged Yasuda to expand his efforts to homes for the elderly and then to institutions for the mentally and physically handicapped. In every case, the game had a tremendous positive impact.

Yasuda's program offers everyone an opportunity to make a positive difference.
