Mahjong, is a game played by Chinese Aristocrats with beautifully
carved, handcrafted jade, ivory or bone tiles. These are believed to
have evolved from paper cards. The game in some form or other has been
enjoyed in China reputedly since the times of Confucius. It is a game of
luck and strategy, deeply rooted in Chinese culture. After 3,000 years,
mahjong has evolved and spread to many other cultures. Today, there are
many styles of modern mahjong – Japanese, Australian, Korean and
American are only a few.
As interest in mahjong grows, our company has enjoyed fantastic success
teaching American Style Mahjong. In demand as a learning and
entertainment resource throughout Long Island, MAHJONG BASICS is quickly
expanding to the larger New York metropolitan area.
LIN – THE MAHJONG LADY
The popularity of learning American Mahjong with MAHJONG BASICS is due
to Lin, The Mahjong Lady and “Mahjong Teacher Extraordinaire.” Her
dynamic lectures and interactive teaching style encourages fun and
focused learning as friends learn and play together. Lin provides
students with the confidence and foundational knowledge to begin playing
at the end of the first session. Consequently, students can handle the
mysteries of Cracks, Bams and Dots within an hour of their first
exposure to mahjong.
The main thrust of MAHJONG BASICS
has been Private Students and Special Events. Our newest company venture
is “Dim Sum Mahjong”
and other Catered Mahjong Theme Parties - throughout the New York
metropolitan area. These are just beginning to take off.
