Hi, my name is Nate, and welcome to Chess Maui,  the best local place to play the game. 

I find that chess is more than just the greatest game over the board—it is a way of life & learning. I believe that if every child had an opportunity to learn the game of chess, they would grow up to be a better human, better problem-solver, a better strategic person at winning the game of life.

I hope to accomplish that mission and represent that belief in a small way by bringing this great game to the youth and young adults on my home island of Maui. And so this is a website dedicated to help network and connect the youth, young adults, and vibrant communities of Maui to the life-changing strategy and game of Chess.

I offer

  • 1-on-1 coaching for youth and adults
  • Weekly meetups and classes
  • Weekend workshops (only 8 spots left!)
  • Local tournaments of different kinds including for all ages, for youths & women only

1-on-1 coaching for youth and adults

In an hour session, we will be covering puzzles, tactical and strategic lessons, philosophies of how to analyze the game, 1-on-1 games and post-game analysis.
