Energybending - A Comparison
While the Lionturtle and Aang use the same technique, Amon seems to be using another method.
When Aang takes away Ozai’s bending, and when the Lionturtle teaches Aang energybending, they both thouch TWO points on the body, the yin tang and the ru zhong point aka the Ajna chakra and the Anahata chakra. 
When Amon ‘takes away’ LBZ’s bending, he only touches ONE point, the yin tang.
Now what could that mean?
I think Amon is faking it. That he is making people believe that he is taking away their bending, when what he is actually doing is blocking a chakra.
Here is why:
Amon touches the yin tang point aka the Ajna chakra:

Yintang Acupuncture Point  






Location: Midway between the medial ends of the eyebrows  Actions& Effects:
Calms the spirit - insomnia, anxiety, stress.
Frontal headache.
Sinus issues - congestion, sinusitis.






When Uncle is teaching Zuko about lightning, he talks about bending needing a certain amount of inner calm. So, if you were to close that chakra and lock all the anxiety inside someone, making them incapable of being calm, that would effectively take someone’s bending away.
Quite clever actually, since the more terrified they are/become the more permanent this block will be. And Amon is sure laying it on thick.
Ru zhong, Ajna chakra, Anahata chakra.

I’d also like to note that he touches the back of his neck too. It’s really split second but he does.

Now if we look here….

Hmmmmmm…..


“AMON”
“AMON”

oh
OH
OH MY FUCKING GOD

HOLY SHIT.  And here I was assuming that Amon was simply a reference to Amun-Ra, egyptian god of the sun.  He was sort of a mash together of two gods, one of the wind and of the sun- but overall highly praised and worshiped as a creator.  With all the rising sun propaganda posters and the big red circle on his mask, I thought it would be a reference to the dawn of a new era or something.  Plus the sun has always been a powerful element in myth and the existence of life soo….
BUT ANYWAY I DIGRESS.
I LOVE THESE GUYS AND I WON’T EVER STOP YOU CAN’T MAKE ME.

They recently did a remodel on the Nickelodeon Animation Studios and installed these snazzy four-high HD displays in the main lobby. They showcase the various Nick shows throughout the day. My friend Rohner Segnitz did a great job designing these awesome digital layouts for Korra and Avatar that frame the episodes. I worked my tail off on the Korra promo poses, and I must confess I love coming into the studio and having a 12-foot-tall Korra and Amon towering over me.
