The company's three goals: intellectual development, better communication, and higher happiness and self-worth.

The company's founder says he spent about one decade outside of the regular school system in his youth days, and credits playing online with giving him social connections and friendships, as well as contributing to his sense of self-confidence.
If kids can be sent for piano and dance lessons, why not make them learn video games too?

Children must learn the ancient gaming skills of rocket jumping, strafing, bunny hopping, 360 no scoping and 720 quickscoping.

Training the next generation of professional gamers. Then some rag-tag gamer who grew up gaming on the streets and in dirty arcades gets accepted to the university of gaming where he battles for dominance against the clinical, professional, classically-trained gamers.

There's probably already an anime about that

Don't forget teabagging

Could be the plot of the e-sport sitcom I've heard rumours of

The company says it’s not offering ultra-spartan practice regimens, and does not care whether or not any of its students ever go pro.
It is more of a form of naraigoto, a child development term used in Japan to refer to educational, skill acquisition-based extracurricular activities.

They can't stop the signal, Mal. They can never stop the signal.
