"WHAT IS THE HERO WORKSHOP?” (Zoom, 2 hours, ages 8+)
The Hero Workshop is an interactive storytelling workshop that leads young heroes in games of Dungeons and Dragons for what we like to call their "weekly appointment with adventure." Heroes join together in a group, and together they decide what happens next in the story. Then we roll dice to determine success.
It's fun, a great way to ignite your imagination, and we will touch on many educational aspects as part of our adventures including basic math, algebra, puzzle solving, teamwork and collaboration, and of course storytelling.
Feel free to check out our website at www.heroworkshop.org for more information!"

Hapkido (Coombs Park-Don’t forget your mask!, all ages)
Hapkido is a Korean defensive martial art taught by Master McLynn right here on Sepulveda. You’ve seen it! The popularity of Hapkido is due to the fact that everyone, young or old, male or female, can practice this art regardless of physical weight or strength, because “good technique” plays a more important role than force. (Side note: My daughter and her friends have taken classes there for years, love it, and we know you will, too, if you check it out!-Emily)
