About the Author

Noel Plaugher began studying martial arts in 1990 after being the victim of violent crime. After studying Shou Shu Kung Fu and achieving his second degree black belt, he began studying internal martial arts. Noel studied Xing Yi Chuan and achieved his teaching certificate (black belt equivalent). He has also studied various forms of qigong as well as Aikido and Judo. Noel lives with his wife, Brenda, and son, Christopher, in Atlanta, Georgia, where he teaches and writes.


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. -- Geoff Thompson 8th dan karate
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. -- Richard Trammell, Shidokan World Champion and author of How To Be a Champion
