The Origin of “Medicine and Kendo” Journey

Hsu Heng-Hsiung, deeply affected by his father – Dr. Hsu Yin-Ko, had excellent medical skills and refined swordsmanship. Hsu’s father attended the Hsinchu State High School in his youth during the period of Taiwan under Japanese rule. He was more interested in kendo activities besides studying. After graduating from high school, he entered the Taipei Medical College and joined the kendo club. He also represented Taiwan in participating in the kendo competition held in Japan.

Dr. Hsu Yin-Ko, with the title “Hanshi 9-dan”, meaning the highest level of kendo technique, found that kendo-related activities were not popular in Taiwan. Therefore, in addition to establishing the "Kendo Association of the Republic of China", he laid the foundation of Taiwan’s kendo by leading the Chinese Taipei national team to participate in sports events overseas.

Hsu Heng-Hsiung, influenced by his father in the childhood, was the top ranking student, and also became involved in kendo. He had a wide range of Interests, playing basketball, raising Chow Chow, etc., but never gave up kendo, and even used his knowledge of all aspects for kendo to help himself think about how to win every tournament.
