Master Edward Sung started this petition to Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva

We are writing this in support of Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 1, which would designate September 4, 2021 and all succeeding years as Taekwondo Day in California. Such a designation would recognize the merits of Taekwondo and the rich diverse cultural heritage this sport represents in California’s multi-ethnic communities with wide-ranging martial arts practices.

We truly believe that the designation would not only enrich the Korean American community, but all of California. As Taekwondo is one of only two Martial Arts fields represented in the Summer Olympic Sports. Furthermore, Taekwondo has been adopted as a fight-training course for our military and law enforcement personnel. With Taekwondo being at the forefront of Hallyu, the Korean wave, which includes K-pop, K-dramas, and the support of Korean Culture appreciation in the United States, we support ACR 1.
