Avatar: The Last Airbender  is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people can manipulate the classical elements with psychokinetic variants of the Chinese martial arts known as “bending”. The series is presented in a style that combines anime with American cartoons and relies on the imagery of East/South Asian, Inuit, and New World societies. It follows the protagonist, 12-year-old  Aang  and his friends, who must bring peace and unity to the world by ending the Fire Lord’s war with three nations.

The fighting styles employed by the show’s characters are derived from Chinese martial arts, for which the film-makers employed Sifu Kisu of the Harmonious Fist Chinese Athletic Association as a consultant. Each fighting style is unique to the “benders” who use them or characters who are aligned to a certain element. For example, practitioners of “waterbending” use movements influenced by  T’ai chi  and focused on alignment, body structure, breath, and visualization. Hung Gar was the inspiration for practitioners of “earthbending“, and was chosen for its firmly rooted stances and powerful strikes as a representation of the solidity of earth. Northern Shaolin, which uses strong arm and leg movements, was chosen to represent “firebending“. Ba Gua, which uses dynamic circular movements and quick directional changes, was used for “airbending“. The Chu Gar Southern Praying Mantis style can be seen practiced by the earthbender  Toph , who develops a unique fighting style as a result of her blindness. Asian cinema influenced the presentation of these martial-art bending moves.
