Mako, Bolin, and Lord Zuko are bowing to eachother using a traditional shaolin style hand formation of one hand open and one hand closed.
The thing i find interesting is that in my time training wah lum/bagua/taichi, I learned that in the northern shaolin temple the right hand is open and left hand is closed. Since firebending is based off of Northern Shaolin, it would make sense that Lord Zuko of the Fire Nation would use this bow.
On the other hand, Mako and Bolin are using left hand open and right hand closed. This is the southern shaolin style of bowing, so anyone using a southern kung fu style would make this hand gesture, as well as some japanese and korean martial arts. Since Earthbending is based off of Hung Gar, a southern style of Kung Fu, it makes sense that the 2 people from an earth kingdom family would use the southern style of bowing.
I love this show, and despite all the cool fighting and great story, it’s that small attention to detail that made me super excited!

I have noticed many posts on my dash related to anxiety.
Today I want to share a few posts I have gathered for working with students to help cope with anxiety and stress.
Since I have been collecting these, some of the links to the sources are now broken websites.
Hope these are helpful!
Why do men always wanna touch me?
The look in your eyes you can’t disguise it says
If you deride the time
Suddenly you so ugly
Like the attitude you’re now facing
About turn violence
My form is curve, intuition, and beauty
Like a sunrise to your eyes
Look into the fire
Stare and go blind
Cannot hold the light
You glare from the shadows you hide
Demanding a piece of the pie
Hearth fire warm apex of Life & Desire
Seeking to enter your greedy lips overflow
Assaulting with words and kisses
Numb hands groping in the snow
Nothing you know
Blinded by the Light. Let me go!
You cannot enter
You shall not pass
Your cacophonous cat calls
Do not give me pause
Nor echo sweetly the song of love down these halls
This is my temple
Supplicants to my court shall bow in my wake
The temple you profaned
Drowned in a treacherous sea
By the earth quake
The fault will grow cold
The gates rust Iron from Gold
The beast did damage untold
Now hear ye! You pillars of paradigms
Patriarchs gone past
On sand you lay your foundations
The hour glass figure counts each grain down to the last
Breaking your rocks
The Sea will erode every rough face
Hewn into marble reflecting Heaven’ face
We shall take the measure at last balance the scales
Refined raw -still prevail
Bow down to the Queens hale, Hail!
