This answer to this riddle is "Shaolin." However, the answer notion that it is the cradle of oriental martial arts is incorrect.

Does Rob Schneider really know martial arts?

I believe he does here is why number one some of those moves he performed in big Stan especailly with then nunchuck swinging there is no trick photography to that and furthermore and not just that he appeared along side jean claude van damme in the movie knockoff he was using martial arts in that movie too and that was before he was a well known like he is now that was before he got his deuce bigalow image created which ultimately made him famous so yes I do believe he knows martial arts now whether he is a martial arts master i don't know and on big Stan he had 6 months of training before he went to prison there is no way u can learn all that and then some of being a martial arts master in only 6 months it would take years to get as good as big Stan was to be able to break a brick with his fist to be able to run his middle finger thru a wooden board and furthermore to beat up a martial arts sensei who in their first fight whipped big Stan's ass and then the second fight big Stan whipped his ass that's no sudden thing he already knew martial arts before he did big Stan that's just my outlook on it i could be wrong but i don't think so

How do you water bend and how to air bend like in avtar?

This can be answered one of 3 ways: 1) "Bending" the water and air is impossible in real life, dude. 2) If you mean how they do it in the show, that is up to suspension of disbelief. I buy it because it's too entertaining for me to care. 3) In real life, the movements they use are from 4 different martial arts forms (one for each element). If you wanted to learn martial arts the way they use their forms to bend, then you can look up what form they use and ways to learn them. I hope this helps.
