• Often known as a game for the intellectually gifted, chess is the best sport to exercise the most important organ in our bodies: The Brain. As a game, it teaches lessons about life such as decision making and foresight. One of the most profound lessons we learn through it is understanding the consequence of our actions.

    At Chess Mates – we’ve got Madhya Pradesh’s top chess players who personally train the kids under the aegis of Mr. Akshat Kamparia, MP’s only FIDE-rated International Master, Founder of the Ilead Chess Academy at Mumbai. Kids of all ages can learn this classic game which will boost their brain power and give them that extra edge in life, all while having fun

    Young kids are fascinated about kings, queens, elephants, etc. and can get immediately hooked on to this wonderful game, if guided appropriately. Chess might just be the perfect teaching and learning tool as kids learn strategic thinking in the garb of war stories. Studies also show that chess boosts creativity, most dramatically in one specific area—originality.

    Playing chess significantly improves children’s visual memory, attention span, and spatial-reasoning ability. As you constantly visualize the board, its pieces, your moves, and your opponent’s every possible countermove, your power of concentration grows. As your concentration grows, it becomes easier to memorize past games and classic strategies. In the process, both concentration and memory grow stronger in a kind of mutually reinforcing “dance.”

    With its focus on problem solving and move variables, chess can improve a student’s math skills. Moreover, chess improves reading skills as well! It’s because the cognitive processes for both are similar—requiring decoding, thinking, comprehension, and analysis.

  • Chess Builds A Beautiful Mind

    Building analytical skills

    Chess is one of the best sports to build analytical skills in children. Kids have to plan various moves, anticipate potential moves of their opponents, mentally compute probabilities of various outcomes. It may sound geeky, but kids are quick to learn this fascinating game of wit.

    Learn Visualization

    The ability to visualize is considered one of the most-ignored skills in developing children. Chess provides an excellent training for one to visualize an entire game in his/her mind, and this becomes a life-long skill applicable in every sphere of studies and career.

    Exercise your Mind

    Games like chess that challenge the brain actually stimulate the growth of dendrites, the bodies that send out signals from the brain’s neuron cells. With more dendrites, neural communication within the brain improves and becomes faster. It also exercises both sides of the brain.

    Accelerate Cognitive Development

    With its focus on problem solving and move variables, it’s not surprising that chess can improve a student’s math skills. But numerous studies show that chess improves reading skills as well! It’s because the cognitive processes for both are similar—requiring decoding, thinking, comprehension, and analysis.
    In separate multi-year studies of elementary-school-age children in Texas, Los Angeles, New York, Pennsylvania, and Canada, researchers found that students who played chess showed more improvement in reading and/or math assessment scores than their non-chess-playing peers.
