From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Bullfighting Edouard Manet Bullfighting or tauromachy Spanish toreo corrida de toros or tauromaquia Portuguese tourada corrida de touros or tauromaquia ) is a traditional spectacle of Spain Portugal , some cities in southern France , and several Latin American countries. Its origin is unknown and there are several competing, opposed and inconclusive theories. The tradition, as it is practiced today, involves professional performers (in Spanish toreros or matadores , in Portuguese toureiros ) who execute various formal moves with the goal of appearing graceful and confident, while masterful over the bull itself. Such maneuvers are performed at close range, and conclude with the death the bull by a well-placed sword thrust as the finale. In Portugal the finale consists of a tradition called the pega , where men (Forcados) are dressed in a traditional costume of damask or velvet , with long knit hats as worn by the famous Ribatejo campinos (bull headers). Bullfighting generates heated controversy in many areas of the world, including

In the Mediterranean, sacrificing bulls is a practice dating back to pre-historic times. In Greece for example, killing the minotaur is symbolic of a bullfight. Bullfighting as we know it today, started in the village squares, and became formalised, with the building of the bullring in Ronda in the late 18th century. From that time, it began to follow a particular sequence of events: the entrance of the bull, the picador, the banderilleros, and finally the matador (bullfighter). Many of the picadors' horses were injured in the early days, so these heavy horses now wear protection. There are about 70 bullrings in Andalucia. Seville is the most important.

Origins and History of Bullfight
Bullfighting is certainly one of the best known, although at the same time most polemical Spanish popular customs.
This Fiesta could not exist without the Toro Bravo , a species of bull of an archaical race that is only conserved in Spain. Formerly this bull's forebears, the primitive urus , were spread out over wide parts of the world. Many civilizations revered to them, the bull-cultus at the Greek island Creta is quite well-known. The Bible reports on sacrifices of bulls in honour to the divine justice. Also in the religious ceremonies of Iberian tribes living in Spain in prehistorical times bulls played an important part.
The origins of the Plaza , bullring, probably are not the Roman amphitheaters but the Celt-Iberian temples where those ceremonies were held. In the province of Soria, close to Numancia, one of them is conserved and it is supposed that there bulls were sacrificed to the Gods.
While the religious cultus to the bull goes back to Iberians , it were the Greek and Roman influences that converted it into a spectacle.

Bull fighting in Spain Bull fighting is very closely associated with Spain and can trace its origins back to 711 A.D. This is when the first bullfight took place in celebration for the crowning of King Alfonso VIII. It is very popular in Spain with several thousand Spaniards flocking to their local bull-ring each week. It is said that the total number of people watching bullfights in Spain reaches one million every year. Bullfighting was originally a sport for the aristocracy and took place on horseback. King Felipe V took exception to the sport however and banned the aristocracy from taking part, believing it to be a bad example to the public. After the ban commoners accepted the sport as their own and, since they could not afford horses, developed the practice of dodging the bulls on foot, unarmed. This transformation occurred around 1724. So what happens during a bullfight?:

Bullfighting in Spain
Bullfighting can be traced back to ancient days. They were popular spectacles in ancient Rome, but it was in the Iberian Peninsula that these contests were fully developed by the Moors from North Africa who overran Andalucia in AD 711. Bullfighting developed into a ritualistic occasion observed in connection with feast days, on which the conquering Moors, mounted on highly trained horses, confronted and killed the bulls. Today bullfighting is big business in Spain with the top matadores earning comparable salaries to the nation's top soccer stars and rock idols.

Welcome News FAACE Campaigns ... Bullfighting A BRIEF HISTORY OF BULLFIGHTING THE ORIGINS Early bullfighting was carried out on horseback, to celebrate notable occasions, Royal weddings, military victories and religious solemnities. When the parliament of 815 met, bulls were killed, according to the Chronicle of Alphonso the Wise. An early instance, of which there is a documentary record, was in celebration of the coronation of Alphonso VII in 1135. The bull killing was held in Varea, Logrono, many famous knights took part. This bull spearing, almost in the form of a tourney or semi hunt, was an aristocratic diversion held infrequently and with no established norms. Over the centuries it transferred from the jousting field to public squares. During the eighteen century, it changed form and became the enjoyment of the common people. It is interesting to note that there are records of bull killings for entertainment in England at an equally early date. THE CHANGE TO BULLFIGHTING ON FOOT Bullfighting on foot came into popular practice in the 18th century. Bands of fighters from the lowest stratas of society killed bulls by wounding them, wherever they could, with swords, daggers, and knives.

On Sunday afternoon, at about ten minutes before 4 PM local time, in bullrings all over Spain and Mexico, matadors kneel in arena chapels and pray to La Virgen de la Macarena to protect them. For precisely at 4 PM, a bugle will blow and they will go forth to meet their destiny. Moments later, a gate swings open and a two-thousand pound bull bred to kill comes charging in. The matadors stare either straight ahead or down at the dirt. Many continue to mouth silent prayers. Earlier, following the matadors and the banderillos, have come the picadors on padded horses, lances pointed skyward. As they draw close to the barrera , they all tip their hats to the dignitaries , then slide behind the shoulder-high protective barricades that shield them off from the arena itself. The matadors, their Trajes de Luces sparkling in the sun, confer with their managers while swinging their capes to test the wind. The banderilleros , who will be the first to test the bull, move to the opposite side of the ring and along with the senior matador, await the first bull. When the beast finally enters, the

15. IDA Campaigns: Bull Fighting
bullfighting aficionados contend that the events are battles to the death in which either participant, the bull or the matador may die.
Greyhound Racing Cock Fighting Rodeos Bull Fighting Bullfighting aficionados contend that the events are battles to the death in which either participant, the bull or the matador may die. In reality, the bull never has a chance to win, and the bullfight is only a cruel spectacle of human dominance.
Studies have proven that before the bullfight even begins, the bulls are weakened with drugs. Their horns are shaved to throw off their equilibrium and they are kept in total darkness before the event so that they are blinded when they are forced to enter the arena. During the first stage, picadors, men on horseback, drive pics into the bull's neck to start the flow of blood and to anger him. Next banderillas gouge brightly colored spears into the bull's neck to lower his bead in preparation for the kill. The barbed spears continue to move and dig into the bulls back throughout the fight, causing bleeding and tissue damage.
The bull may also experience internal bleeding. Once the bull has been weakened by blood loss, the matador taunts the bull for several minutes before he stabs the bull between the shoulder blades. He aims for the bull's vital organs, but often misses, causing the bull to suffer further. Often, the bull maintains consciousness, even as the matador and his team begin carving his ears distribution as trophies.
Bullfighting is losing support and popularity. In 2004 245,000 activists signed a petition to ban bullfighting in Barcelona. While bullfights occur primarily in Mexico, Spain, and the south of France, curious American tourists are largely to blame for the support of this institution. The prevalence of tourists at these events allows bullfights to occur with greater frequency than they otherwise would.

Page 1 of 12 Spanish la fiesta brava or corrida de toros , Portuguese corrida de touros , French combats de taureaux , also called tauromachy the national spectacle of Spain and many Spanish-speaking countries, in which a bull is ceremoniously fought in a sand arena by a matador and usually killed. Bullfighting is also popular in Portugal and southern France, though in the former, where the bull is engaged by a bullfighter on horseback, and in many bullrings in the latter, it is illegal to kill the bull in the arena. A kind of bullfighting is popular in Korea, Japan, and some countries of the Middle East, but this form pits bull against bull. Bloodless bullfights, in which the bull is caped but unharmed and its killing only simulated, are popular in many countries and in several U.S. states, but they are often denigrated by bullfighting traditionalists.

    All bullrings, or plazas, are round, shaped like coliseums of old. The seating terminology varies, but most bullrings are divided as follows: The first and second rows of seats surrounding the ring are known as the Barrera (barrier) and Contrabarrera, respectively. Behind these rows are six- or seven-row sections called tendidos: Tendido Bajo, Tendido Medio, and Tendido Alto, each section a little further back, in that order. Spain's version of nosebleed seats is an upper deck called the Andanada, also known as the Tejadillo or the Tendido Cubierto. The general rule is that higher seats cost less, but there are other factors at work. Sol or Sombra?
