5 Recommended Points of Introductory Shogi Textbook, “Shogi Lesson Book for Beginners Vol. 1”

1: Step by Step Approach; Small Steps made by 15-min Daily Lesson

“Shogi Lesson Book for Beginners” is aimed at helping Shogi beginners learn to play a Shogi game effortlessly. To motivate children to keep learning Shogi with joy, a daily lesson doesn’t contain many subjects, but has only one page of practices and one page of explanations, which require only about 15 minutes.

Even you are currently a new to Shogi, you can expand your knowledge about Shogi using these tiered lesson plans.

2: Daily Video Lesson

There is a proverb,“A picture is worth a thousand words”. It is often easier to show something in a picture than to describe it with words. It is the same with Shogi. “Shogi Lesson Book for Beginners” uses video lessons to help beginner children understand materials more deeply.
Reading a QR code on each explanation page, you can have video lessons instructed by Ms. Akaiko Nakakura who is a ladies professional Shogi player and a writer of this textbook.

With considerable experience of teaching Shogi for 1000 children in total, Ms. Nakakura is giving a thorough explanation about the concepts, theories and techniques which many children often have trouble with.

3: Materials Reflecting The Results of Prior Study with Children

We conducted studies targeted at preschoolers and students in the early elementary grades. Based on valuable feedbacks from children who are beginners at Shogi and their parents, through trial and error processes, we figured out what were children’s challenges and difficulties.

Incidentally, big drawings and review practices on practice-pages are employed, following opinion of those children and parents.

4: “For Parents”; A Section for Parents Who Are Not Familiar with Shogi

Supposedly, parents often learn something first to teach it to their small children. In that sense, if parents are unfamiliar with “something”, they would probably have problems to answer children’s questions.

Recently the number of women who enjoy Shogi has been increasing. However, especially when it comes to Shogi, many mothers are most likely to be new to Shogi, like their children.

So, we provide an informative section on explanation pages of our “Shogi Lesson Book for Beginners”. This section is titled “For Parents” and gives parents tips to teach Shogi to their children. This section is good for parents who would wonder how to teach Shogi.

5: “Let’s think about this!”; A Section for Parents and Children

The fundamental joy of Shogi is “thinking”. Introductory Shogi textbook, “Shogi Lesson Book for Beginners” has a section titled “Let’s think about this!” on practice-pages. There are some questions asking about things other than Shogi, for example, “What is the most important for you?”.

Listening carefully to children’s answer, parents may ask more, “Why is it so important for you?”, or “What else do you have?”. These interactions and supports from parents help children improve their thinking abilities and have good communications with their parents.

Originally, Shogi is a game to encourage communication between players, regardless of age or gender difference. Some questions are not related to Shogi directly, but through the section you will enjoy the best part of Shogi.
