The Knight Chess Academy: Where Dreams Take Flight

In the vibrant city of Kolkata, The Knight Chess Academy was born in 2019 with a simple yet powerful vision - to teach chess to youngsters and ignite their intelligence.

When the unforeseen challenges of COVID-19 struck, the academy didn't falter; it adapted. Swiftly transitioning to online classes, the academy redesigned its structure to continue imparting the magic of chess to eager learners.

Asmita, a youthful 23, and Sonkalan, at 24, share a unique bond and possess a magical ability to ignite a spark in kids. Their love for children and their passion for chess make learning at the academy a joyous experience.

Their dual role as players and educators creates a unique environment where the intricacies of the game are not just taught but also understood at a deeper level. As players themselves, Sonkalan and Asmita understand the importance of dreaming big. They not only teach chess; they inspire students and parents to dream big.
