Airbending is one of the four elemental bending arts, the aerokinetic ability to control and manipulate currents of air. The peaceful Air Nomads utilized this type of bending in their everyday lives.
Air is the element of freedom. Airbenders continually sought spiritual enlightenment, the result of which being that all Air Nomads are benders. The first Airbenders learned from the Sky Bison.
The key to Airbending is flexibility, finding and following the path of least resistance. Airbending is notable for being almost entirely defensive, however it is reputed to be the most dynamic of the four bending arts. Airbenders can overwhelm many opponents at once with large and powerful attacks that could prove fatal; however, due to the pacifist nature of the Air Nomads, such attacks are rarely used.
After the Air Nomad Genocide commanded by Fire Lord Sozin, almost all knowledge of Airbending had been lost. However, it was later discovered that there were several documents of Airbending knowledge stored within the various Air Nomad Temples, which were accessible only to those resourceful enough to find them.
