Tesuji are moves that make the most effective use of stones. While they are typically techniques fox close-combat fighting, tesuji play a crucial role in all aspects of the game, from the opening to the endgame.

In this famous dictionary, translated into English in four volumes, Fujisawa provides a thorough and systematic survey of key tesuji, arranging them in accordance with the purpose they serve. This second volume covers tesuji that are useful for defending, including things like escaping, making shape, taking sente, solidifying a base, and linking up, the other three volumes deal with tesuji used in attacking, in the opening, in capturing races, and in the endgame. ln all these areas, tesuji are closely involved with fighting, and knowledge of them is essential for becoming stronger. Rujisawa also points out that tesuji are part of what makes go am elegant and fascinating game and in this way they contribute to the beauty of go.
