Nine basic crosscut combat shapes
to analyze to determine the shape that forms
a strategical/tactical grid balance
of links, bases, walls, frames.
The corner, side, center lines a shape is on,
and ladder pursuit tactics,
are major factors in aim analysis.
THE ART OF GO
Finding the strategical and tactical maneuvers
that equally divide a section of the grid with respect to the whole grid
via war principles.
Provide a training program to help Go players:
1) Learn the Go shape interaction language and elements;
2) Understand what is happening on the Go grid;
3) Develop Go style and Reckon/Evaluate/Analyze/Diagnose skill.

After you learn and study Go shapes,
how do you train your mind to put them into your games?
reckoning, evaluation, analytic, diagnostic
examination, calculation, cipher, optic
skills for assessing the Go shapes in your games
requires repetitive daily practice.
Here is a daily train exercise program
that is useful for expanding your Go skill.
Fortunately there are now many books
for you to train and exercise with
as well as the internet to observe and play games.
It takes time and practice similar to learning a language.
Study one chapter or section a day of your books
until you have the Go shapes in your brain.
There is no short cut,
you will have to go through the books over and over again
until you learn and can apply the Go shapes.
Repetitively study the books
rotating them so you visualize and analyze the shapes
at four different views.
