The Air Nomads were a nation of wandering Airbenders. They were a monastic order of men and women who practiced Airbending, the mystical art of aerokinesis. They did not have great cities and towns like the other nations, but instead built four Air Temples, one at each corner of the globe, hidden away atop mountain ranges in the northern Earth Kingdom and on three remote islands. The Air Nomads were a peaceful society that dwelled at high altitudes in temples and traveled the world atop their flying bison. They were based on Chinese Shaolin monks and Tibetan Buddhists. Pious and forthright, Airbenders preferred to use their Airbending, which all Air Nomads could use, strictly for defensive purposes, striving to live in harmony with nature. Meditation was an important part of the Airbenders' daily routines; it helped them to focus their energies and understand the potency of their element. The arrow on a Master Airbender's head is an emulation of the natural arrows on the heads of the revered Flying Bison who can naturally Airbend and were the inspiration for the first Airbenders. In order to receive the tattoos as well as the title of master, an Airbender needed to pass the thirty-six levels of Airbending and engineer a new technique. Airbenders learned their bending art from the Sky Bison who Airbend using their tail and mouth. The light blue full body tattoos seen on Aang and other Airbenders are derived from the Sky Bison's natural markings, and symbolize a person's mastery of the Airbending discipline. Airbending is based on the Ba Gua style of martial arts. Ba Gua is known for its constantly circular movements, which makes it difficult for opponents to attack directly. The practitioner uses his own momentum as a weapon, constantly building up inertia for explosive counterattacks that evoke the unpredictable nature and explosive force of the wind. It is undoubtedly, the most dynamic of the four bending arts. Airbenders have the ability to enhance their movements during battle. They can take giant leaps into the air, move at high speeds, run on water and vertical surfaces, glide on air currents to slow their descent and even spin around like a tornado to move quicker and confuse opponents. They can also create cushions of air to soften and blunt the falls of heavy objects. Airbenders can project powerful gusts of wind from their mouths. Master Airbenders can create vortices to disorient opponents and tornadoes to attack opponents. Airbenders are also capable of projecting solidified constructs of air to knock an opponent off balance or to provide defense from projectile weapons.Retake Quiz
