Mr. Jing-hung Sung was
born in a small offshore village of Baisha Island in Penghu, Taiwan. Living in
a poor family, he had great athletic talent and often participated in various
sport competitions on behalf of his school. Quick to learn, he could give an
excellent performance after the teacher showed the model for only once. With
strong passion for something fresh, he also tried some literature and art
competitions. For me, the most effective way of learning was “observation plus
practice” if no guidance was available. While other children were indulging
themselves in games, he was watching a calligrapher writing couplets. After the
careful observation, he would practice what he had learned at home. This
explains the reason why he has such an impressive handwriting.
After graduating from
Penghu Aquaculture Vocation School at the age of 18, he went to Taiwan to make
a living and studied the Chinese martial art with a master. It was then that he
became interested in the traditional Chinese medicine. During the day, he
worked in an iron mill; in the afternoon, he taught taekwondo in a club; in the
evening, he buried himself in the books about medicine. Eventually, his efforts
paid off and he was admitted to the programs of traumatology and acupuncture,
becoming the strongest shield against the sport injuries of his students.
to the news reports in 2002, a technician certificate could be exchanged for
the degree of junior college education. With a higher vocational education, he
seized the opportunity and got admitted to the Sport Coach Research Institute
of Private Chinese Culture University. In the research institute, the
combination of theory and practice greatly benefited him.
