What we're about
Welcome to the home of the Little Rock Go Club
A branch of the American Go Association.
The Little Rock Go Club is dedicated to the play and study of go. Curious, Beginner or Pro, we welcome everyone with an interest and passion for Go.
What is GO ?
Go is one of the oldest games in the world, it has been played for at least three thousand years. Go was invented in China, though the who and when is a matter of considerable debate and the inspiration of myth and legend. While it's called Go internationally, it's also called 圍棋 wéiqí in Chinese, 바둑 baduk in Korean, 囲碁 igo in Japanese.

Go is simple to learn and can be studied for a lifetime. Three simple rules, infinite possibilities. Children as young as five can learn to play go, yet it's depth allows you to study it for a life time and still not know all it's secrets.
