Was his name revealed in any of the leaks?  I would love for him to have some connection to Zuko's teaching line so that Korra knows the "true essance of firebending" as taught by the dragons and how to redirect lightning.  My current theory/hope/guess from the clip that leaked is that Korra's teacher is Tom-Tom, Mai's younger brother. He looks about the right age - gray hair but not as old as Katara, less wrinkles, maybe a decade younger.  

Thoughts?

Nothing has been leaked about Korra's firebending teacher. The leaks showed her firebending and with some people watching, one of them in FN clothes, but it's unclear if her teacher was there at all. At least that's what it looked like to me.

I highly doubt Korra's firebending teacher is of the royal line. I could see the firebending master at the time who teaches the Royal Family firebending being Korra's teacher, but that's it.

And there's no indication that anyone in Tom-Tom's family is a bender, so I don't see any reason to assume he is, or why we even need that connection.

Maybe it is, but thats just a connection for the sake of a connection. Its not like we really knew anything about him. For all we know, Bumi killed him when he had Ozai's statue crash on the Governor's Mansion.

Tom-Tom, nooooooooo! ;-)

A genetic/family connection isn't important. But it is very important that as the new Avatar that Korra understands the "true essence of fire."  How much of that has been restored in the past 70 years? Hopefully enough that average firebender does know that their element isn't just anger and destuction.  Still, I would love there to be connection with Zuko's royal line, I'd love for there to be yet another bond between Avatar and Firelord for the third generation in a row.  It was just test footage, but Korra was performing not just any firebending move in it but Zuko's signature breakdancing fire move.  I just wonder if any of that will carry over to the actual show.

Jeong-Jeong's nephew, who's also Piandao's illegitimate son, joined Zuko's palace staff as a guard, where he met and fell in love with Zuko's second daughter. Their son, who was trained by Tom-Tom, is Korra's Firebending teacher.

He was also Korra's first kiss. That's why her parents fired him. (Not literally. They're not Firebenders.)

This is now canon. Take notes Mike and Bryan.

I thought there was a rumor that she taught herself? She obviously needed someone to help her perfect, but I thought because of the few leaks, it was shown she was able to do it without a teacher at first?

^Yeah, she could earth bend and fire bend at the age of 6 I believe, but only a teeny tiny bit. She still needed masters to help her perfect it.

No, Hiroshi is someone she meets in Republic City. He's related to Asami. We saw in the leaks that the Order of the White Lotus trained her.

Hiroshi Sato strikes me as Fire/Water, but I doubt he had anything to do with Korra's training.

The firebending master doesn't appear to be in the credits, despite having a speaking part. Disappointing.

Sigh. We need names. We didn't find out Korra's parents' names either. I don't think Korra's mom was in the credits.

As there are no more spoilers right now, please continue this discussion in this thread in the main Korra board:

http://forums.avatarspirit.net/index.php?topic=19040.0 (Korra's other teachers)


This thread can be reopened in the future if necessary (like if there are more leaks).
