I've been reading about the Adult Chess Improvement Seekers (ACIS) on Blunderprone's blog. The ACIS (pronounced Axis) of Caissa is quickly turning into a movement. Blunderprone himself states that: "The only real requirement is that you establish a method you can sign up for and blog about your journey." The paradigm seems to be that method is good, but different individuals might need different methods.
The A.C.I.S. of Caissa have inspired me to think through training approaches, and formulate techniques that I believe in. My basic model or method, if you will, will be:
1. Identify a problem
2. Find or design training techniques that may help
3. Train using these techniques
This means that the set of training techniques will not be static. It will change over time, depending on the problems that are addressed at the moment, and how far I've gotten in solving them.
