EARTHBENDING the geokinetic ability to manipulate earth and rock, in all its various forms.
Earth is the element of substance, making Earthbenders and their people diverse, strong, persistent, and enduring. The first Earthbenders, Oma and Shu, learned the art from Badgermoles. The key to Earthbending is neutral jing, which involves waiting and listening for the right moment to strike, and, when that moment comes, acting decisively. In other words, Earthbenders generally endure their enemies’ attacks until the right opportunity to counterattack reveals itself, then strike with unyielding force.
