PostSubject: Fire Bending For Beginners   Sun Nov 30, 2008 2:11 pm

While the Sun is the origin and inspiration for firebending, the Dragons were the firebenders that taught man how to firebend. The philosophy of firebending from when it was first created differs radically from that of the present-day Fire Nation. Originally representing warmth, energy and life, the Fire Nation's is fueled by rage and anger. Firebending in itself is not totally devoted to unleashing the power of fire on opponents. In actuality, the focus is placed upon balance. Firebending hinges on mental stability such as inner calm, discipline, emotional stability and physical stability such as a firm balanced form, breath control and general good health. Firebenders are more powerful during the day than the night due to solar sympathy.[Firebenders lose their power to bend during a solar eclipse. But, when a Comet is near, a firebender's power is increased unimaginably, as if they were in the presence of 100 suns. This gives them the ability to fly, produce pillars of fire, and gigantic fire blasts. Sozin first used the comet to wipe out all the Air Nomads, and thus beginning the war. Ozai then attempted to use it to wipe out everyone in the Earth Kingdom with it, but he was stopped by Aang and his allies.

Firebending moves are based mainly on the style of Northern Shaolin. Northern Shaolin Kung Fu features quick, successive and flamboyant attacks, making firebending the most aggressive of the four bending arts. Firebenders tire much easier in battle than other benders due to breath control. Breath control is one of the first things taught to young firebenders because without control of breath, they are more prone to lose control of the fire they are creating or controlling, leading to disastrous results.

Special Firebending techniques

Creating/Redirecting Lightning
Another type of firebending used in the show is lightning. Mentally, it involves a complete absence of emotion and peace of mind. Physically it requires separating the energies of yin and yang. When the forces collide, the bender only guides, rather than controls, the lightning's direction. By studying the techniques of waterbenders, Iroh developed a counter to lightning attacks. When attacked, it is possible to redirect the lightning through and out of the body. However, this technique is not without risk. It is important to route the lightning through the stomach to avoid shocking the heart and die. Azula and Ozai greatly feared this technique since they themselves don't know how to use it. Creating lighting appears to be a secret technique of the Fire Nation's royal family, as only Azula, Iroh, and Ozai are shown creating lightning. Lightning redirection is even more rare; by the end of the series Iroh, Zuko, and Aang are the only Firebenders to know the technique of redirection.

Flight
Some skilled Firebenders are able to project flames out of their feet, resulting in short boosts that enable them to jump much higher. During Sozin's Comet, when a Firebender is most powerful, this ability is greatly enhanced and they are able to sustain full flight for an unlimited amount of time.

Combustion
Combustion Man (or "Sparky Sparky Boom Man") displayed a very unique form of Firebending, the ability to superheat air into a thin beam which results in large explosions. No other character has displayed this ability and it is unlikely that any other can, as the power appears to be connected to the eye-shaped tattoo on his forehead.

Breathing Fire
Part of the reason for Iroh's nickcame, "The Dragon of the West." Iroh can breath fire like a dragon with this skill.

Blue Flames
Azula has the ability to bend blue fire, which has a much more intense heat. She is the only firebender that has shown this ability, not even Iroh, Ozai, or the Avatar has been shown to bend blue fire. This could argue that the only difference of blue fire is just the color. This was demonstrated when Zuko was able to deflect Azula's blast just as easily as regular fire. In the finale, Zuko had the upper hand in their duel, despite Azula's mental instability.

The Northern Shaolin style of kung fu is one of the most prominent traditional northern styles of Chinese martial arts. The northern styles of kung-fu generally emphasize long range techniques, quick advances and retreats, wide stances, kicking and leaping techniques, whirling circular blocks, quickness, agility, and aggressive attacks.
