- Those other monks in the temple couldn't have been air benders. Bending is hereditary, so Tenzin and his kids should be the only air benders, unless Katara had other kids with bending capabilities.
According to the Avatar Wiki, Aang and Katara's first two children -- named Kya (for Katara's mother) and Bumi -- were non-benders.
The Avatar Wiki refers to Kya as a waterbender. The open question, of course, would be any grandchildren of Kya or Bumi. They would probably end up as airbenders, waterbenders, and/or non-benders. Of course, that all assumes that bending is almost entirely hereditary and not influenced by culture/environment/upbringing.
