Bullfighting


At first, a man throws salt to purify
the bull ring.


Okinawa's bullfighting is very different from
the one in Spain.
Trainers are called Seko and they motivate
their bulls before the fight.
Then the fight begins with the bulls
locking horns.
They try to wrestle the other
to the ground.
