Airbending is based on the Baguazhang style of martial arts, also known as “circle walking” or “Eight Trigram Palm”. Baguazhang involves “smooth coiling and uncoiling actions”. Such moves employ dynamic footwork, throws, and hand techniques. These martial arts feature swift, evasive maneuvers that evoke the intangibility and explosive power of wind; drawing energy from the center of the abdomen. Maneuvers employ the entire body with smooth coiling and uncoiling movements, utilizing dynamic footwork, open-hand techniques, punches, and throws. A common tactic is to maneuver behind an opponent and mirror their movements, preventing them from turning to face the practitioner.

                           Zuko would have to duel his own father.

You’re really growing up!
