The First GM chess Academy, is a group of private and corporate citizens who envision a Malaysia with it's first Chess Grand Master. We also see a Malaysia which is able to compete with each other in healthy competition to help bring out the excellence in all of us and yet be able to work in partnership in the face of outside competition.
Our definition of healthy competition is finding ways and means to improve our own individual and collective skills in order to win and NOT by undermining the competition.
The basis of our partnerships is mutual respect, integrity, responsibility, accountablity and transparency. And our alliances are based on those shared values.
We see chess as a good medium to promote these same values for chess already has, in the main, been a mental sport played in the spirit of muhibbah in Malaysia and chess has demonstrated equal excellence in all our diverse communities.
