Michele Frizzell has a passion for Mahjong! As a child Michele watched her Filipino grandfather play Mahjong with his friends and it always mystified her. In ‘73 Michele’s mother, Carolyn, learned how to play Wright-Patterson style at the McChord Air Force Base Officer’s Wives Club. Carolyn taught Michele how to play the game so she could practice at home – playing Mahjong bonded them together immediately. Carolyn became an avid player and led several Mahjong groups. On occasion Michele would play with Carolyn and her friends – these have become some of Michele’s most cherished memories. Carolyn passed away from cancer in 2004 and that was the pivotal moment when Michele began her mission to share the joys of Mahjong with others in honor of her mother.
Through the years Michele has become an advanced player of several styles...
Fast and flexible
National Mah Jongg League
What makes Michele unique is that she teaches all of these styles as well. She has designed comprehensive player references and has developed tried-and-true teaching methods that have shortened the learning curve significantly for most players. Anyone who has learned to play Mahjong from Michele speaks highly of her creative approach to learning and great patience as a teacher.
