Avoid the crowd. Do your own thinking independently. Be the chess
    player, not the chess piece


    Chess is a war over the board. The object is to crush the
    opponent’s mind

About US

Cognizance Chess Academy was formed in March 2019 ,with a vision to contribute fruitfully to the growth of Chess. It was setup to organize tournaments, conduct coaching classes and coordinate chess camps at regular intervals, across the length and breadth of state of Kerala. The main objective is to provide chess players with more exposure to games , which is instrumental in the development of a player. Learning achieves its meaning only when a player gets opportunity to apply it in different games and thereby add more to his knowledge base. By organizing more tournaments, classes and camps for kids we look forward to generate more interest in them and provide them a strong footing in the game. Engaging in games with experienced players will help them to enhance their knowledge and skills
