WATERBENDING

Definition-Waterbending is a mystical martial art featured within the fictional universe of the Nickelodeon animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. A moiety of the Water Tribe, Waterbenders, as the practitioners are known, possess the hydrokinetic ability to control water, steam and ice.

Weapons- It has been shown that weapons can be incorporated into the art. Sifu Kisu, the martial arts consultant for the show, has stated that, given the cutting-like techniques, the best weapon to be used with Waterbending would be a katana or a cane sword.

Specialized Techniques
Healing-Certain Waterbenders possess the ability to heal wounds and relieve sickness by redirecting chi paths throughout the body, using water as a catalyst.[3] Physically, this draws on the restorative properties of water to organisms such as human beings that are primarily composed of it.

Though powerful, Waterbending healing cannot heal every ailment. In the Northern Water Tribe, due to the traditionally patriarchal culture of the tribe, healing is the only aspect of Waterbending taught to female Waterbenders, with classes assigned for young girls held in huts towards the development of the ability.

Extensions of waterbending:
Plantbending-A member of the Foggy Swamp Tribe, Hue, has illustrated that Waterbenders can manipulate the vines and roots of plants by bending the ample amount of water within them.[7] Going further, a skilled Waterbender is able to extract the water from plants for more effective utilization, albeit leaving behind withered, dead remains of the former plant life.

Bloodbending-Using Bloodbending, waterbenders are able to bend the water within living creatures, giving them complete control over them. The technique is only possible under the power of the full moon, when a Waterbender's abilities are at their highest.

A fact about water bending:
-water bending can be used nearly everything needed to survive (houses, equipment, move things around, healthy drinking water, etc)
-Art of water bending can be used in the calmest ways but also most devastating (spiderman: great power becomes responsibility, i think)
-Advance fire benders using lightning are no match because we can re direct lighting with our water
(no offense to any advance fire benders =)

information source: watching the series up to latest release

wow!!! i really learned something out of your post!!!

thanks!!!

i just recently watched the episode using bloodbending...

i think it's kind of cool but of course, it doesn't always have its advantages...

i mean, you have to control a living thing, including a human being...

it can be used for survival but somehow it's like you're depriving the right of a person or any living creature
in acting with his/her own will...

as for plantbending, i kind of pity the plants...but if it's necessary, it can't be avoided to use such method...

well, that's what i think...
