Prologue:

The last of the four main elements Korra learned. As her spirtual awareness grew Korra finally gained access to Air. Over the course of the remainder of the series she vastly developed her Airbending in tandem with her spiritual journey, to the point it became her go to element in the back half of the series and for the comics.

· Fire Negation:

Korra is capable of negating and diffusing her opponents firebending, going beyond the usual methods of just blocking with hands or her own firebending, she even goes as far as to manipulate her opponents firebending while it is being actively launched and bended by her opponent.

AB, Amagi, KorraHDAMV, H20, Largh

These are surface level examples, Aang used the AS to intimidate Katara, which is worse and less effective than Korra using it for a race.

Kyoshi herself mocked her own usage of the AS at one point. Your issue is you believe the AS needs to be used in an over the top manner when this is simply not the case. No where close in fact, an Avatar with fine control can use it quite effectively.

Her mastery of healing comes to a surprising extent as it's the prerequisite to perform an far more advanced and especially rare variation of the technique right below

Spirit Bending
