2012.12.08_MyungwanKim_DSC_0373The AGA East Coast Go Camp has announced Myungwan Kim as the teacher for this year’s camp.  Kim is a 9-dan professional, and the only player dispatched to the United States by the Korean Baduk Association since 2008. Kim has more than 10 years of teaching experience, and his students include several US Youth representatives, such as Aaron Ye, Andrew Lu, and Brandon Zhou. He is also three-time US Go Congress Open division winner and currently holds the highest player ranking in the AGA.

Camp directors Amanda Miller and Nano Rivera welcome all campers to join them for a week of go-playing and fun. “If you’re a go player between the ages of 8 and 18 and would like an opportunity to study go for a week with a professional teacher, then the AGA Go Camp is for you,” says Miller.
