After winning two chess championships, Orrin recognized that chess provides a structured way of learning and helps to develop skills, such as patience, concentration, problem-solving, and the ability to follow rules. It also teaches responsibility, as it illustrates that all actions have consequences. Lastly, it teaches that winning isn’t everything; sometimes losing can be a valuable instrument for improvement. It is from these roots that Orrin developed the Make Every Move Count method.

“It’s less about teaching chess and more about building character.” – Orrin C. Hudson
