Yilun Yang 7P Joins Teaching Staff at Go Camp

Sunday April 28, 2013

“The AGA Go Camp is excited to announce that Yilun Yang 7P will be joining us for camp this year,” reports Camp Director Amanda Miller.  Yang became a professional at the age of 14, in 1973. He has trained many notable players, including Rui Naiwei 9P, Chang Hao 9P, and Hua Zueming 7P. An  experienced teacher, Yang has been teaching in the United States since 1986. He’s also the author of many popular go books, such as Fundamental Principles of GoLife and Death by the Numbers, and Life and Death in Chinese Characters.  ”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, the AGA East Go Camp is for you,” says Miller. Anyone who played in the US Youth Go Championships is eligible for a $400 AGF scholarship to the camp.  Kids who didn’t play, but need financial help to attend, can apply for a needs-based scholarship here.  Visit the camp website for general information, pictures from past camps, and news regarding this year’s upcoming Go Camp.
