Workshops include a chess tournament grappling exhibitions and a discussion on martial arts used as non-violent strategy in life. Of the event, HHCF co-founder Adisa Banjoko told HipHopDX, “We are very excited to be able to get sponsorships to keep events like this happening regularly. People on the east coast should know that we plan to host some events out there before year’s end.
