Muay Thai - Thailand's Cultural Heritage
拳 – 泰國歷史文化遺產

Muay Thai or Thai boxing has long been Thailand’s cultural heritage. There is no evidence to identify the time of its origin. Being one of Thailand’s identities, Muay Thai is not a thing for others to easily imitate. Thai forebears used the art of Muay Thai to defend themselves and fight their enemies and invaders to maintain the national independence to this day. In the Ayutthaya period (around 1774), a Thai native named ‚Nai Khanomtom‛ used Muay Thai in his solo fight against 10 invaders whose king who saw the fight said that ‚Thais without a sword but bare hands are still dangerous to be defeated‛. Nai Khanomtom is therefore praised as the Father of Thai Boxers and renowned to this day.  ......>Read more

Propect of Hong Kong in 2014
馬志堅師傅談「甲午」年 香港流年運勢

「甲午」(2014年)(馬)年香港流年運勢展測

甲午年立春日在二零一四年二月四日,農曆為正月初五日卯時初刻三分。交「立春」後為「甲午」馬年之始。甲午流年「立春」之八字結構為:

甲午 丙寅 丙午 辛卯

今年二零一四年,歲次「甲午」,天干屬「木」,地支屬「火」,成「木火相生」之象。按八字結構,五行組合中,「火」佔四分,氣熾炎;但八字內缺「水」,無水作潤澤。兼且八字內亦缺「土」,而只有一分「辛」金,故無「土」生金,而火旺金弱,火旺則土焦。「日元」為「丙」火,屬陽火;而「日柱」地支「午」亦為陽火。陽火疊來,顯示流年八字命格剛烈火盛也。 ......>Read more
