Netflix’s “The Queen’s Gambit has been a huge hit, becoming the top-rated show on the platform practically everywhere. In the series, Anya Taylor-Joy plays Elizabeth Harmon, the charismatic orphan genius who storms the male-dominated world of competitive chess.

According to University of Memphis research, playing chess significantly improves children’s visual memory, attention span, and spatial-reasoning ability. 

Chess is definitely the game which will raise your kid’s IQ and it’s not a surprise. A study showed that 4000 Venezuelan students both boys and girls showed increased IQ scores after 4 months of chess instruction. 

Chess is a fair game; it’s your kid, the board, and the other kid. There is no physical contact; only the battle of minds. 

Want your kids to get started? Sign them up for lessons and tournaments facilitated by Arena International Master. The sessions will be conducted via zoom for only Ksh 350 a session. Your kids will be working alongside some of the best prodigies in Kenya.
