My Beginners lessons teach you at a comfortable pace.  You'll learn tile recognition, rules of play, how to set up and select your hand and basic strategy.  National Mah Jongg League (NMJL) cards are available for purchase if needed and I have sets for sale as well.

Sundays, 10:00a - 2:00p, August 12 & 19  ($175)

Did you learn the basics of the game from a friend and want to learn more?  Haven't played in a few years?  Want to pick up some tips for getting back up to speed?  This is the class for you!  Students taking this class will already recognize tiles, know how to read the NMJL card and understand basic rules of play.

Are you not winning as often as you want to?  Do you get confused and frustrated during the Charleston when you try to pick a hand?  This is the class for you!  This class goes beyond the basics and teaches you how to spot hands during the Charleston, when to be nimble and when to pick a hand and stick to it, and how to use the strategy of the current NMJL card to increase your wins and sharpen your game until you, too, are a Shark!
