About us


Jose Raúl Capablanca: "Chess is more than just a game, is an intellectual fun that has something a lot of art and science, is also a means of social and intellectual approach."

The words of one of history's greatest chess masters are echoing down the ages...at Chess Rules Australia we really believe that chess can bring people together and is an important game for children to learn. After 20 years of teaching children of all ages in schools around Australia, Toni Ziffer has helped many kids who have grown up with the tenets and moral values that are imparted by the game.

Toni is dedicated to helping children become better adults by learning about chess, it's history and the wonderful philosophies that are inherent in it.
