Sri Chess Academy was started in August 22nd, 2014 with a goal to create future GMs for United States of America. United States produced some great Grand Masters includes all time famous Bobby Fischer, Larry Evans, Gata Kamsky, Nakamura and many more.
This chess institute respects and fascinated by players like Gary Kasparov, Vishy Anand, Mikhail Tal, Bobby Fischer, Magnus Carlsen, and Anatoly Karpov. Though Tal, Fischer, and Larry Evans are no more the institute respects and admires their contribution to the chess world. They have presented many games that would be ever remembered by Sri Chess Academy.
I hope this passion to teach chess will give a hope to create another Anand, Tal, Kasparov, Karpov, Fischer, and Magnus.
