Baduk was invented several thousands years ago. It was one of the Four Great accomplishments that a gentleman was expected to learn: Geomungo (traditional Korean zitherlike instrument), Baduk, calligraphy and painting. Baduk represented a high social standing. In the late 20th century the fast industrialization gave ordinary people time to enjoy leisure activities. Thus the high society's culture became a mass culture and one of the important leisures. Furthermore Baduk helps adults' mental health, children's mind, concentration and thinking ability. In the 1990s Korea became one of the strongest nations in the Baduk world, the Department of Baduk Studies was established, Baduk TV etc, were founded, the cultural and educational foundations for Baduk in Korea were laid. Especially when more people got to know that Baduk helps children's education, it became an activity in a special education program at elementary schools. All over Korea the number of Baduk schools increased.

I became interested in Baduk education, founded a Baduk school and taught many children for 15 years. In order to teach Baduk to children well, I went to Myongji University and graduated in Baduk Studies. I realized that systematic books for good education were missing. Nowadays the books consist of five levels (introduction, basics, beginners, intermediate and advanced level). The teacher can choose the proper books for their students. However, analysing the books showed that there are serious problems concerning the content and the level. In the same book some problems are too easy, others are too difficult. Like this it is not proper material for students, as it doesn't make students and teachers interested in Baduk.

I recognized, that systematic books are needed. During teaching and studying I collected material and published this book series to help children learning Baduk easily step by step. Even if the composition is not perfect, I hope my effort will help to develop Baduk education.
