The 2nd area of the corrida includes the job from the picadors, bearing lances and installed on horses (padded in compliance having a ruling passed in 1930 and for that reason rarely hurt). The picadors put on flat-brimmed, beige felt hats known as castoreños, silver-embroidered jackets, chamois pants and steel leg armour. After three lancings or fewer, with respect to the judgment from the president from the corrida for your day, a trumpet blows, and also the banderilleros, working by walking, advance to put their banderillas (brightly adorned, barbed sticks) within the bull’s shoulders to be able to lower its mind for that eventual kill. They put on costumes much like individuals of the matadors however their jackets and pants are embroidered in silver.
Following the placing from the banderillas, a trumpet sounds signalling the final phase from the fight. Even though the bull continues to be weakened and slowed it’s also become warier throughout the battle sensing that behind the cape is it is true enemy most gorings occur at the moment. The serge cloth from the muleta is draped within the estoque, and also the matador begins what’s known as the faena, the final act from the bullfight. The aficionados (ardent fans) read the matador’s every move, the ballet-like passes practised since childhood. (Most matadors originate from bullfighting families and discover their art when very youthful.) As with all manoeuvre within the ring, the emphasis is on the opportunity to increase but control the private danger, maintaining the total amount between suicide and mere survival. Quite simply, the actual contest isn’t between your matador as well as an animal it’s the matador’s internal struggle.
The fundamental muleta passes would be the trincherazo, generally completed with one knee on the floor and at the outset of the faena the pase en firma, simply moving the material while watching bull’s nose as the fighter remains still the manoletina, a pass introduced by the truly amazing Spanish matador Manolete (Manuel Laureano Rodríguez Sánchez), in which the muleta takes place behind your body and also the natural, a pass by which danger towards the matador is elevated if you take the sword from the muleta, therefore lowering the target size and tempting the bull to charge in the bigger object—the bullfighter.
After several minutes put in making these passes, in which the matador attempts to stimulate the thrill from the crowd by working closer and nearer to the horns, the fighter takes the sword and contours in the bull for that kill. The blade must go between your neck since the space together is extremely small, it’s imperative the front ft from the bull be together because the matador hurtles within the horns. The kill, correctly made by aiming straight within the bull’s horns and plunging the sword between its withers in to the aorta region, requires discipline, training, and raw courage because of this it’s called the “moment of truth”.
Being a torero (A documentary about bullfighting)
ice788: Fuck all you hypocrites. Just because YOU didn't kill your steak doesn't make you any better then these ballsy Matadors. You must feel so much better knowing your steak only suffered for 5 years living knee deep in it's own shit. Then it got it's testicles removed without any anesthetics. Then it was pierced, prodded, tagged, and sometimes whipped before being made to walk slowly up a ramp where the screams of death from his brethren echo throughout a slaughter house. You're all so uneducated and full of yourselves. Go to a slaughter plant, take a tour, then tell me how cruel you think Matadors are. The only thing I see wrong with bullfighting is it should be about getting a clean kill. A good matador should be able to do the dance, and then end it with one swift painless stab into the spinal column.
James H: well said my man, been trying to educate these fools myself. Why don't they go and protest outside abattoirs?!?!
beauty craze: what a bitch azz comment 16:21 to said that the bull has a cell in the body that doesn't make him suffer……wtf…huh stupid thing Iv'e ever heard.
Isa: Actually they are not cells…they are hormones… Adrenaline and Cortisol. the bull cannot feel any pain because the high secretion of these hormone and only if the bull is brave, (because the bull has high level of these hormone if he wants to fight.)\nthat is why nobody wants to see a bull that is not brave…Because nobody who goes to a bullfighting likes to see an animal suffering…because apart of dangerous (for the bullfighter) because the pain he is feeling he is not concentrate in the muleta (red cape) and dont want to fight so the bulllfighter cannot do anything artistic…\nthat is why there is so much selection and thanks god there are more brave bulls that not braves one.

franklin phan: FUCK U FUCKING SPANISH ANIMAL FUCKERS WHO FUCKIN SUPPOER YOUR MOTHERFUCKING SHIT OF A SPORT!!! CANT YOU SEE THE DAMN BLOOD ON THE ANIMAL'S BACK?! ALL YOU MOTHER FUCKING DUMB ASSHOLES SHOULD GO TO HELL YOU POOR EXCUSE OF A LIFE!!!
James H: UNLESS YOU ARE A VEGAN, STATISTICALLY UNLIKELY, YOU ARE ACTUALLY A FUCKING HYPOCRITE.
meeekstube: I'm not sure I'm doing myself a favour to leave a comment in this moronic level of debate I can read here. I thought it was a fairly honest account from someone who's aware of the amount of criticism this entertainment provides. But I know things and opinions shift and today we think this is off limit! I heard of extreme ridiculous measure that have been taken in the animal rights concern. This is not an extreme case by any stretch of imagination. However those who like it and practice it have their say too. There is a lot I do enjoy in bullfighting, it's not perfect but what is? As for the cruelty…Human do this to each others too such as boxing and other dangerous sport or masochistic activities. Ok the bull does not get a lady or money if it does not loose and did not fight as a result of its decision…. I wonder if they omitted or changed the final step but kept the cape and muleta work whether it would be more acceptable. Well it's not pure nor simple.\nI'm not sure about the statement regarding suffering, we can only suggest how animals suffer…Do they suffer when they wait in line at the slaughter house? Perhaps there is classical music on request for them; too bad if they'd prefer rock!
ss8140: Coward get in a room with a bull without your weapons and your poncy dress and we'll see how that goes
Viper Maverick: Fuck the Spanish for this monstrosity. I hope the bull kills all who support this barbaric sport. All the way from Juan Carlos down to this cunt. Fucking murdering idiots.
