Here’s a question for you… Can chess save lives? If your instructor is Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson, the answer is, “Definitely!”
Hudson will bring his life-size chess board and special chess instructional skills to the Lithonia Stonecrest Library, Saturday, November 15, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. as well as his unique KASH Formula for Success for young people. KASH? Knowledge, Attitude, Skills, and Habits. Hudson has used this message to make a difference in young lives for the past 15 years. Once an at risk youngster, Hudson turned his life around thanks to an instructor who used the game of chess to teach critical life lessons. He is now on a mission to pay back and reach young people who may face risks of their own.
“I learned that you have choices to make on the chess board. One wrong move and you lose,” he stresses. “But life is not a game. A wrong move there and you could be finished. My goal is to teach that lesson to as many young people as I can through this wonderful game.” Hudson has traveled throughout the U.S. and overseas accompanied by his ever-present chess board. He is making a difference.

The November 15th event is free and open to the public. “This could be the best time investment parents can make if they will bring their children to both learn a new skill and to watch as I incorporate key messages into the learning experience,” he emphasizes.
