My name is Darmawan Effendi, I am from Indonesia. I learned chess when I was in 4th grade. At first I watched my father played with my youngest brother. From that time I encouraged myself to practice chess. And I became the number one chess champion in Elementary school I attended. I lead the school to the tournament chess every year. Now I am joining Bay Area chess as a coach. I had 5 years experience coaching Elementary school. My goal for the kids Learn, Focus,Compete and Fun.
