    • Many of the waterbending movements come from the martial arts style Tai Chi.

      Also, in Tai Chi, stances are very important just like how Aang told Katara to shift her weight through her stances. Some of the stances in the move Katara was trying to learn are the same stances in Tai Chi forms such as the Bow and Sit Stance and the Ding Bow Stances.
