Fold space was a Force power that allowed a Force-user to bend space to instantly transport an object between places. This form of teleportation was used by the Aing-Tii, a mysterious species living on a planet in the Kathol Rift. This technique allowed the wielder to use the Force to teleport any object or possibly one self from one place to another.
In 43.5 ABY, when Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker and his son, Jedi Knight Ben Skywalker, visited the Aing-Tii homeworld, Luke was taught the technique by Tadar'Ro. Abeloth utilized this ability while battling an allied force of Sith and Jedi in 44 ABY.
Fold space was also used in a way known as "Aura of Freedom", which allowed the user and nearby allies to resist being moved with the Force.
