Why is it that there aren't any Air Benders in Pro-Bending. Is it because they are peaceful and do not associate themselves with the game? or maybe they were in it but i just didn't notice.

            Isn't it kinda the 1st one?
            Because they're all monks essentially

            ...right?

            Plus any airbenders would've been Aang and Katara's children
            or their children's children,
            And Tenzin seems to be a bit against it
I've got a better theory.

I think there are no air benders in pro bending because.... get this....
There's four of them alive.

I think their names are Tenzin, Meelo, Jinora, and Ikki.

If there are any more, we don't know about them, but I'm sure that they would've been brought up by now.
Are you saying that you would have Tenzin, Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo enter probending? Because aside from Korra, they're kinda the ONLY airbenders around.

I was under the impression that it was because there are no airbenders to take part in Pro-bending.

Aang was the last airbender, and so now his children and grandchildren—Tenzin, Meelo, Ikki and Jinora—are the only airbenders alive at the moment. And none of them are about to take part in Pro-bending at the moment.

Well, for one thing the air benders were monks. It's probably against their morals to use their bending for violence or fame.

Well Aang was the last Airbender and his son Tenzin and his grand children could possibly be the only other air benders left.

Even if Airbending could be learned by others I don't think there will be enough to be allowed to probend.

Tenzin and his kids are the only Airbenders they've told us about, and none of them are Pro-benders

The first logical answer here.
There are no airebenders in Probending because there aren't any airbenders!
The only airebenders are an old guy, his three young (eventually four) children (the oldest is probably only 10 years old), and the avatar who is already playing as a waterbender.

Besides, the game was created back when there was only 1 or 2 airbenders, even if there were enough, there aren't any rules to accommodate them.

Because airbending would break the game.
The goal is to knock them off the ring... so you just blow a gust of wind and BAM. Match won.

1: There are no Airbenders besides tenzin, his kids, and soon korra.
2: tenzin's too old, his kids are too young, and korra don't know it well enough
3: there'd be no corresponding airbender to even out the game
4: it'd be WAAAY too easy for an airbender to knock them off the ring.

You saw ittle wittle jinora make those wind doors spin buckwild, imagine what she could do to 3 people on a plane above water.

I laughed so hard at this thread.....
It's because air-benders are almost extinct. Aang was the last one alive and The Legend of Korra takes place only about 100 years after.
