  • Bending Arts
rdfs:comment
  • Bending, the ability to manipulate an element, is very significant to all aspects of life in the Avatar world. There are five Bending Arts. Four of them are indigenous to each of the four nations, and one of them is exclusive to the Avatar, who is also capable of using all other four Bending Arts. The bending abilities are not defined genetically.
  • The fifth bending art, energybending, is unlike the other four in that little physical action is required to direct the bending itself. The four elemental bending arts are all dependent on the energy, or chi, within the human body, relying on its flow through the body to manipulate a specific element. A person is able to bend when they extend the influence of their chi beyond the body to interact with the environment. Energybending, on the other hand, is concerned with the manipulation of the energy itself and is able to remove or grant bending abilities.

abstract
  • Bending, the ability to manipulate an element, is very significant to all aspects of life in the Avatar world. There are five Bending Arts. Four of them are indigenous to each of the four nations, and one of them is exclusive to the Avatar, who is also capable of using all other four Bending Arts. The bending abilities are not defined genetically.
  • The fifth bending art, energybending, is unlike the other four in that little physical action is required to direct the bending itself. The four elemental bending arts are all dependent on the energy, or chi, within the human body, relying on its flow through the body to manipulate a specific element. A person is able to bend when they extend the influence of their chi beyond the body to interact with the environment. Energybending, on the other hand, is concerned with the manipulation of the energy itself and is able to remove or grant bending abilities. Though each nation is affiliated to a specific bending art, not all citizens from any nation, with the exception of the Air Nomads, are born with the ability to bend an element. In the case of mixed marriages, the children may be benders of either element if they are benders at all; for example, firebender Mako and earthbender Bolin are brothers with parents from the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom. The only case of any one person being able to bend multiple elements is the Avatar, who has the ability to practice all five bending arts.
