Qigong is probably the best kept secret in the martial arts. It can have a profound effect not only on your general health and wellbeing, but also on your martial arts performance. Standing Qigong for Health and Martial Arts - Zhan Zhuang by Noel Plaugher is a brilliant introduction, I would say an essential guide. I highly recommend it.

Several years ago, a gentleman came into my gym and he stood in stances for several minutes before transitioning to another. I recognized his skill in Qigong. Noel is an expert in his field. I highly recommend this book.
