A note from GM Atanas and Coach Nataliya:
To become Master, FIDE Master, International Master and even Grandmaster – it is a way we
know, we can show it, because we have already passed it. We are proud to have a Team of high-level Grandmasters and coaches with extraordinary ability and long experience in chess training.
As a result of our professional and dedicated work, all our students have significantly increased
their personal ElО rating. The results of our students are impressive: National Champions, A
World School Chess Champion, International FIDE Titles
Training with Grandmasters in a professional way to achieve your full potential.

Along with professional training, we offer a lot of entertainment - fun and curious puzzles,
interesting stories and events from the chess world, the latest news from chess
tournaments, opportunities to play against a grandmaster in simuls, blitz, special events
and so on.

Everyone ages 6-17 is WELCOME!
From Zero to Master.
