Tainan Wude Hall (Old Tainan Martial Arts hall)(台南武德殿)
When visiting the Confucian Temple site, you will be drawn in by this enormous and beautiful building, with its exterior preserved in a Japanese style. The building is a shared memory and hidden treasure for teachers and students at Zhongyi Elementary School. Just imagine how many students can proudly say that their school's assembly hall is a historical site. Constructed in 1936, the Tainan Wude Hall (台南武德殿) is currently the largest remaining martial arts academy in Taiwan. It was designed by then Tainan Civil Engineering Corps in the style of a traditional Japanese hall, and its design and construction are of high quality. The first floor is a space for various subsidiary services; the main room on the west side of the second floor is the budo hall, while the room on the east side is the kendo hall; the protrusion to the north is the altar. Nowadays, besides being used as Zhongyi elementary school's assembly hall, kendo courses are sometimes conducted here, continuing the building's tradition of martial arts training.
