Step by step course lesson 1
Created on December 20, 2005 by Guo Juan 5p.
In this lesson, we are going to learn:
A, What this game is about;
B, One basic shape;
C, Two basic josekis;
D, Solving life-death problems
E, Counting territory.
This is the first step, but even if you are stronger than 25k, we think it is still not a bad idea to take this lesson, because the basic ideas and shapes discussed in this course are good for every body to know.
Level: 30k - 1d

||i'm login, i've payed for a year and i can't watch the step by step course lesson one what' the matter ?
||Are you watching this on a computer (e.g. Windows PC) or mobile device (e.g. iphone)? The video player requires Java, so it won't work on an iphone at all. If you're using PC, make sure you have Java installed and that it's working correctly. You can visit www.java.com for more information about how to install Java.
This might not even be your problem at all, but I hope it helps
||I was rather disappointed that the teacher never went into a breakdown of WHY the joseki were good, just detailed the order. I suppose that is fair for the very first course, but do any of the others go into the principles? I have no interest in rote memorization when I can learn how to create my own good moves.
||Looking back I see my comment was phrased very nastily. I apologize for that. Let me rephrase: This particular was lesson appears to have been below my current level. I am more interested in learning the reasoning behind why the various josekis are considered good than in strictly memorizing the josekis themselves. Important shapes lecture 2 did a little bit of explanation. Are there other lessons I should look at for an explanation of principles behind josekis?

||START HERE UNLESS YOU ARE A DAN OR ALMOST A DAN. AFTER COVERING AT LEAST HALF OF THESE LECTURES GO TO THE ATTACKING SERIES IN THE MIDDLE GAME HEADING. I HAVE COMMENTS UNDER THE FIRST ATTACKING LECTURE TO SHOW YOU A GOOD WAY TO APPROACH THOSE LECTURES. DURING THE PROCESS COME BACK TO SOME LECTURES UNDER THE BASIC SERIES AND COVER SOME OF YOUR WEAKEST AREAAS SUCH AS ALL ABOUT EYES. IF YOU THINK ANY OF THESE LECTURES ARE BENEATH YOU THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY EITHER A DAN LEVEL OR YOU ARE NOT GOING TO IMPROVE. :)
