The Bullfighter

Every "matador" is a "Torero" (bullfighter) but not every torero is a matador.  Below you will find a quick overview of the different types of toreros and their corresponding roles in a classic corrida.

The Matador

What happens in a Bullfight?

The traditional and most common format of a Corrida sees three matadors alternating in order, to face and ultimately kill six bulls over the course of roughly two and a half hours. This format is followed for bullfighting in Spain, Mexico, France and other countries with this tradition.
