Chinese chess is not merely an intellectual game; it is also a way of improving one's character. As the title of our website suggest, Chinese chess is a game of perception. Much like western chess, it requires concentration, determination, foresight, careful calculation, and patience. When one is winning, don't be hasty. When one is losing, stay calm. To be a good player, one not only has to be good at the game, one also has to learn to control one's own emotions and show sportsmanship.
