Shōgi club is an EJCA club started in 2022. We focus on learning and playing Shōgi, but are open to explore other Japanese board games as well.
We seek to meet in person at least once per month, usually on a Saturday afternoon, in the EJCA Centre. In addition, we will frequently host online tournaments among our members on lishogi.org.
For the exact planned schedule and dates, please check out this online spreadsheet, or the extract of confirmed upcoming sessions below:
Please contact us if you would like to join and have any questions. Beginners are welcome!

What else do you need to know?
NEW to Shōgi?: You may find our flyer, the beginners presentation or Shogi etiquette primer helpful. Don't be afraid of the Kanji symbols on the pieces - you will learn then in a short time and special beginner piece sets are available that carry easy to read arrows/symbols that help you play right away!
