Governor Hogan Taekwondo

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, along with First Lady Yumi Hogan, issued a proclamation declaring April 5 as Taekwondo Day in the state. Delivered via video message, Hogan enumerated the positive qualities developed through taekwondo training as well as citing the martial arts' role in helping Maryland residents remain strong during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hogan, who received an honorary ninth degree black belt in taekwondo during a trade mission to Asia in 2015, first proclaimed a Maryland Taekwondo Day in 2016.
