Why this course?
You may love attacking, but defending ―like it or not― it’s something you must do! ☺ The important thing is to learn how to defend in a professional manner and not like a patzer. Improvising and making careless moves in a nonchalant way are common practice for amateur players when they are defending. This kind of “defensive” play becomes self-destructive.
Being the defense a neglected subject by common chess trainers, we have created this course to fill that gap. We are providing you with ten weapons to professionally defend yourself in a practical game!

As a bonus for you, we have published the fourth chapter from the course, “King Walk”. In this chapter, IM Robert Ris discusses an important topic when you are on the defensive side. Almost every chess player knows the importance of castling the king in the opening stage in order to safeguard the king.
But what should you do when your opponent attacks your castled king and you couldn’t find a proper defense? One of the defending techniques is to simply run away, trying to escape your king from the unstoppable attack. In other words, taking your king for a walk – the king walk technique. That is exactly what you will learn from this lesson.
