Why we name your profile page “Kaizen Deck” ? – Go players have a fable for Japanese culture since long as Japan was in the 80s (last century) the strongest Go nation worldwide, ahead of Kora and China. Kaizen is the Japanese word for “improvement“. And a method as used by Japanese corporations which follows the Kaizen princips too (e.g. Toyota): Plan ? Do ? Check ? Act (also see Shewhart cycle). The term “Kaizen” fits very well what ASR – Advanced Study Room and the ASR league stand for by its own philosophy. The ASR Team has the confidence, that your personal (profile) page – as starting point – supports you to reach your personal targets in your own GO studies more easily.
