Why 'Stange Horse?'
    ‘Maxiqi’ 馬希奇 is the Chinese name used by Sam Masich. The name was confered on Sam during the 1985 World Wushu Invitationals in Xi’an, China, when Sam was a member of the Canadian National Wushu Team. ‘Maxiqi’ (pronounced Ma-h’shee-chee) is ‘Masich’ sinofied and literally translates to 'Strange Horse' (‘Ma’ means 'horse' and ‘Xiqi’ means rare or eccentric).
