Freestyle bullfighting consists of a bullfighter competing for sixty seconds against a fighting bull to score as many points for maneuvers performed within the one-minute competition. The bulls used are primarily of Spanish descent and unlike traditional bullfighting, the bulls are not harmed. Without getting hit, each bullfighter is judged entirely on their ability to perform gravity-defying aerobic stunts as close to the bull as possible.
