Ok so, we all love Avatar The Last Airbender! If you have never seen it, go watch it! Maybe this post won't really make sense for you, yet.
One reason that it’s such a good show, is because the creators did their research! In the show, each element bending style, earth, air, fire, and water is based on an individual martial art. The creators worked with Sifu Kisu and Sifu Manuel Rodriguez to help get the techniques correct and make fights make martial scene. Clearly it payed off, the bending battles are my favorite part and it really elevates the show.
